Quick question. When turning the ignition key, I hear the starter motor spin, but it does engage to the fly wheel (high rpm electric motor noise only).

I took the starter motor out and connected it to an external starter pack (battery). the starter drive spins, but the sprocket does pop out of the starter housing.

Before I take it apart, is this a common problem with the motor, and how can I resolve this issue (if at all).
Does it have to do with the drive actuator lever?

Quick response much appreciated as I need to drive to the Keels-Wheels exhibtion near Houston early Tomorrow morning.

(Hopefully it is an easy problem, but I never came across this before)

anyway. 4 hours later, I rebuilt the motor and she seems not do what I want it to do. There were some loose solders I redid, but the starter engine is indeed ancient and I do not like to get stranded. Solution Anything, more that 4 hours work, buy new!!
