Areas where we have gotten bitten before are in the centerline of the casting boss of the engine Block
to Kicker socket in the triple gear

We did a massive repair on a 1919 engine Welding/ Machining for a customer and never addressed the
Kicker mounting holes in the engine as the were one of the only spots on the entire project that were
not damaged.

I never caught the mounting flange in the case was not in the same axis as the "triple Gear" counter
shaft bearings.

The fix was to make a offset kicker socket housing.

The next issue to look for is to make sure the sprag teeth completely disengage. The video I posted
shows this pretty good.

A couple other picky little issues have been the male sprag that fits into the socket housing has to
have a minimum of .003 clearance. The flat wire spring that goes between the two has to be in good shape
or it can cause a bind.
I think you have a alignment issue.

Hi Mark,
I asked about this before on
the forum and got a few
responses but so far nothing
worked out.
Our Streamline has a kick
starter that jambs and won't
turn the engine. I recently
began looking at it again and
still come up with a bevel gear
interference problem, perhaps
worn shims.
Everything in the gearbox
proper appears to be working as
it should and the engine itself
is free. The kick starter frees
when the clutch is disengaged
and the gearbox can go through
all the gears spinning the rear
wheel but releasing the pedal
and re-engaging the clutch
causes the starter to jamb
I'm pretty much resigned to
pulling the engine and I guess
I'm just looking for some bit
of confirmation that I'm on the
right track.
If anyone else has had this
problem I'd be happy to hear
from you too.
