i did my do a little over a year ago when i put it all back together i ended up only having 3 washers figured it was misplaced or wasnt put together correctly to begin with. so i went on a trip to roswell to get the washer (only place in nm that had one) got a speeding ticket on the way back, sigh anyway i got it all back together and everything was good until recently when a buzzing noise started happening. i checked everything i could and found it coming from the left case area. it sounded like a chain buzz but only during acceleration and while clutching if i let off the throttle and engine braked it wouldnt make the noise. anyway i just cracked the case to check the doo and make sure everything was still sitted correctly in there and when i opened it up i was super careful to make note of washers. and guess what. only 3, i'm not sure whats going on with this, i am thinking maybe the washer is getting warn to the point where it disappears? anyway i see no evidence of metal anywhere in the case, nothing in the oil either. so anyone ever have a magic washer on the starter gears? cuz i'm pretty sure i do.
