              Arco's catalog (can't post it here) says the same thing..... page 30 (gear reduction starter)

              I recall Ricardo on the Marine Engine board ( or Rick on the Bayliner's owners club board same person) saying that some have plastic gears, but I have never seen one and am just curious.
