Anyone have experience with the late model, so-called Posi-Drive starter drives.
I have tried two (junk) Indian made aftermarket 6V, 8N starters within the last 22 months. Both came equipped with the late style Posi-Drive starter drive which I did not change because I (as yet) have no way to remove it.
The first starter motor failed in about 18 months due to dead spots on the commutator and eventually died completely (out of 90 day warranty). The second still works after about 6 weeks but the drive jams into the ring gear and does not release. Yes, it worked OK for about a month but it now jams no matter where I position the engine before starting.
I have never had this problem with the OEM, spring style starter drives.
Anyone have useful experiance?
