And just to be clear.
I mean putting the MBS writing part facing the inside instead of the outside.


Ah ok, yeah that does seem odd. My apex air adapters also only have three holes, whereas my M1S adapters have more angle adjustments. Don’t know if this will be a big issue for me but I have some m4 taps I’m prepared to use

I determined that its actually the motor gear. The gear mesh gets tight at one side of the motor gear’s revolution and loose 180* away from that side. I also remember that that motor gear slid onto the motor shaft way too easily and i was having issues with it wanting to slide off by itself while i was waiting for the loctite to cure. The oversized hole is allowing the gear to sit off-center on the motor shaft. The opposite gear drive’s motor gear had to be press fit, which is how it should be.

Yeah the three holes seems to be a cost saving exercise. I haven’t used those particular adapters but i did need to advise a customer to try flipping the hanger to make it work. It worked

You wouldn’t have brakes, but imagine how good that freeroll would feel :rofl:

do you know what that mechanism is called? id like to read about what’s goin on there

It’s a starter motor, I think it’s set up where the pinion is splined or keyed but not locked so if the motor is faster than the engine the pinion is pulled out and engages, if the engine is faster the pinion is pushed out and disengages

bit of an odd question but has anyone put a grease nipple into the housing so it doesn’t have to be opened to top up the grease?
