mercury starter issue
I have a 2002 25 hp merc 2 stroke. my starter will not work unless i pull up the engagement gear to the flyweel then when i shut it off it will not start again. all i hear is a faint click. I know what it will cost if i take it to a shop, forget it. any one have any ideas? also ther is some kind of spring between the gear and the bearing on the starter shaft it doesnt look right.
