Re: Starter Binding Problem On W351 Motor
The next time that you remove the starter, check out the condition of the gears. Mainly look at where the bendix meshes with the ring gear and look at the actual sides of the little teeth. It sounds to be like a major mis-alignment issue or if it's possible to do so, wrong amount of teeth on the bendix for the ring gear. When you crank the starter does it make a strange noise like the gears are pushing into each other, or the starter is working overtime just to rotate the crank?
