  • 88 johnson starter motor

    1988 Johnson 120 hp. when turning key to start the drive gear jumps up , the starter motor shaft spins but drive gear spins slow and hesitant . the drive gear gets hot. I am guessing there is some type of clutch in this drive gear. Can this drive gear be purchased and replaced or is it necessary to replace the whole starter motor?

    Yes it can be replaced. It is called the starter bendix.
