broken ring gear??
« on: 11 January, 2017, 03:10:16 PM »
My starter was making a lot of noise for several months. Today I wanted to start it, it made a big metallic "bang". Now the starter turns with a strange noise, but it doesn't start.
I suppose it could be the ring gear.  :003:
Does anyone recognize this??

My commiserations ...  :003:

You could probably bump start it to get it to dealer, but probably don't want to in this weather ....

It's not like a car, there is no 'ring gear' on the flywheel arrangement. The absolute worse scenario is the stub on the end of the crankshaft has snapped off (happened to a small number of 955s). However in your case, because it's been making a noise for some time, and as Rhead as already mentioned, it sounds like the sprag clutch has failed. Any noise from the starter on 955/1050 engines is a sign there is something wrong (usually as a result of continued starting with a less than perfectly strong battery) and should be attended to immediately. Luckily for you it's easy to access on the 1050 so the labour isn't to bad.
