Starter spins, not engaging flywheel
My neighbor has a GT5000 with a Briggs 24hp ELS, the year is unknown, but it is one with the flawed aircleaner design.
The starter spins but does not engage the flywheel. I told her I would look into it, but our schedules are so mixed up I can't really troubleshoot it, so here I am.
Is this starter rebuildable or does she need to buy the whole thing?
Just my opinion, yours will differ.
