    In the last two years on two seperate occasions, my starter will not pop up and engage. I think it is sticking because it gets dry. Is there a special type of grease I should use on the pinon? :confused:

    I use either a touch of a quality bearing grease and I have used 3 in 1 oil in a pinch. The bearing grease will stick a little better, just use it sparingly and work it in or when you start it will fly everywhere. If you have a buddy, you can have him stand next to it while you start it. It makes for a good boat repair prank. :D :D :D ;)
