Well shouldnt the idler gear be loose in there then if it didnt have that bush as it is tight as in there when i install those two gears????
Yes i have installed the washers as i done that when i took these pics above.
So now i just need the so called bush?
Well i did replace that part as that was part of the reason i done the upgrade mine was fingered.
To check it the gear should only spin one way correct?
Not the small middle gear, the big one that goes behind the flywheel. Actually I bet the gear is just fine, it's the starter clutch that is bad.
I'm just guessing here long distance, BTW, but something caused your starter to seize and subsequently wear the teeth off the splined end. Since you replaced a bunch of stuff already, it worked a bit, then this happened, I'm sort of looking at other things being wrong or bad that caused this damage than those. At this point I'd try to spin the lower gear sticking out of the engine case either forward or backward to see if it spins. If it doesn't in either direction I'd say that's your issue. If it does spin, well, good luck to you then.
