    So your sprague clutch stopped the starter from turning over?

    Have only heard of them spinning without engaging?

    I've never seen a bad sprague stop the starter from turning over... Usually when the starter really struggles to turn the engine it means the auto decomp is not properly functioning...

    I have seen plenty of bad spragues that struggle to turn the engine over though, but the starter still spins fine...

    anybody know where i can get the starter armature. mine has a bad spot, i took it over to have it rebuilt but he cant find the armature. since i have two, i guess i could combine the two, and then have it rebuilt. it would be nice to have a spare.
