There does not seem to be a replacement primary case that eliminates the starter motor or even a cover plate that allows removal of starter.
I have read many topics on this crummy piece of engineering called a sprague clutch. But I have not seen any real solutions short of just removing it. There does not seem to be a replacement primary case that eliminates the starter motor or even a cover plate that allows removal of starter. So what I end up with is an ugly unusable starter hanging on the front of the motor? I've been out of the loop for a while. Anybody come up with any new solutions in the past 6 months?
Yes, the same sprag lives in Borg Warner transmissions.
Ace, do you think this is any better than the oem sprag? Know of anyone use the borg warner part? My thinking is the application in the bullet (or any single prone to kickback) and the design of the sprag will result in the same demise; regardless of who marks the part.
