|Step 9: On a clean, flat surface, disassemble the kickstarter assembly.|| |
|Step 10: The snap ring retains the interior thrust washer.|
If the snap ring is tight DO NOT remove it. However, if
the snap ring is even slightly loose, it needs to be replaced.
|Step 11: Inspect the return spring for tension, unusual|
bends, breaks, or any signs of excessive wear.
|Step 12: Inspect the ratchet spring for the same issues.|
This spring is light and is meant to be compressed to
under 1/4 inch when installed.
|Step 13: Inspect the ratchet inner splines, ratchet|
teeth and stopper arm.
|Step 14: Check the pinion gear for a smooth bore,|
straight gear teeth and ratchet teeth.
|Step 15: Inspect the collar. The collar keeps the return|
spring in place. Check for wear around the opening and exterior.
|Step 16: Make sure the exterior thrust washer is|
still flat and smooth.
