I have a big block chevy in a dragster,at the race Saturday the starter kicked back when I cranked it for first round,still cranked but sounded like crap,thought I broke a tooth off flywheel,finished race and brought it home,jacked up to check flywheel,no broken teeth on flywheel or Bendix,I watched the Bendix as I spun over,the Bendix is going in and out of flexplate like it is loosing fire and getting it back,took starter apart found nothing wrong but put on spare and it works fine, where do I look now ?

If it sounds like it is grinding then the drive is slipping and can be replaced easily and fairly cheaply. I think I paid $50 for drive from local auto electric shop.

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/til-54-421

a spare should be in every racer's trailer.

I believe the pinion gear pitch/tooth count differs for a 139 tooth flexplate. Call Tilton.

there's no reason to send his starter to anyone when changing the bendix takes maybe 5 minutes from start to finish.

Little Ed, according to you but you've never seen the starter or maybe he wants updated.

Call Mark he will tell you what you need to do. If says he can send you a new drive and you can install it yourself all the better! It truly is that easy!

the OP don't need anyone to make his starter right, a new bendix will do that.

That's true but not everyone is as talented as you so some folks need to return it for service.
BB just sayin

swapping the bendix out requires the same "talent" as changing a spark plug. If you can't do that, maybe it's time to rethink your hobby.

for future reference, the clutch is the same. The 139 tooth gear is the stock Hitachi gear.
