    I have a scag walkbehind with a 21 HP Kawi on it. I just washed it up a week ago. Went to start it tonight and the starter just spins. So I took it off the motor, took the soleniod off and cleaned everything up. Went to put the solenoid back on the starter and that is where I'm having problems. There is a plunger type mechanism on the solenoid that has to go into this fork type piece on the starter. Are there any tricks to getting this together. Also what might have caused the starter to just spin. It was fine when I put it away. Thanks for any help

    I remove the fork from the nose cone then slide the fork over the drive gear and insert it in the nose cone as a assembly then pop the fork retainer back into it's place. That is a strange one unless you got water inside the drive clutch it's self. I would also bench test it before re-installing to make sure all is fine.
