    upon closer inspection, the cast aluminum kick start spring guide fell apart....and thats most of whats left....after cleaning the crap outta everything with carb cleaner (highest velocity aerosol i had...LOL) i found this in the case that i didnt see before....more bits and pieces...

    thankfully it was just cast AL and not steel, so the gears all appear to be fine yet....:clap

    already ordered a new guide, since it wont work right without it...LOL
