Re: starter spinning engine not?
When you turn the gear, does the engine crank try to turn? If you turn the gear in the direction the starter would turn it, it should immediately engage the crankshaft. If it does not, then the sprag clutch is not engaging. In operation, once the engine starts the sprag housing is then turning faster than the starter drive, so it free wheels all the time the engine is running. That is why hitting the starter button with the engine running does nothing.
