    Starter problem

    The starter motor on my slayer turns just fine, but it only turns the engine over for a couple revolutions before the engine stops turning yet you can still hear the starter spinning. Any ideas?

    I was doing some reading and was starting to come to that conclusion too. Is it a big job to replace?

    Looks like I can clean it. I'll try that first.

    Problem came back after a few starts. Ended up replacing the one way bearing and so far it seems better.

    Take the ez start off (best time efficient way is to remove the engine from the chassis), check the OWB and make sure the side that is stamped with lettering goes in facing the front of the truck.

    when the temps. outside get cold, I noticed mine does something similar. get a hair dryer or heat gun and stick it on the heat sink, once up to a descent temp. should have no problems.

    So I bought a Revo a couple weeks ago and have been running both my Slayer and Revo in the snow. Both are showing symptoms of slipping OWB's again. I pulled the ez start off the Revo, cleaned it all with brake cleaner and it's working fine again. Must be water and other contaminants from winter bashing getting into the bearing causing it to slip.

    On both my Slayer and Revo I can get the ez start off in about 5min without pulling the engine.

    The OWB requires regular maintenance. A little bit of fuel will seep out between the starter shaft and the back plate as it is not a 100% seal between a moving and non-moving part.

    I saw little backlash between starter shaft and spacer ( this spacer hasn`t part number but sold with OWB #5211R ).

    Remove the OWB and soak it in denatured alcohol, swish it around,remove and let dry then oil it with 5w-30 SYNTHETIC motor oil.
