My terminology above might be misleading. But here’s the parts diagram of the GENERATOR. Part # 3 is the idler gear that is in direct contact with the starter. Part #4 is referred to as the ONE WAY STARTER something or other ;) that is connected to the main crank.

Part # 4 is called a Starter Clutch in the 2007 SX230 service manual.

Yeah no clutch on my boat thou?? Also the service manual has no info on installing or even taking out the starter. Day 3 and still no luck, next step the dealer 700 bucks to install a starter super sucks.

I took out spark plugs and could not get the drive shaft to turn at all. Tried using plyers but no real angle to get a good grip at. I tried turning impeller with metal pole and nothing. Also before the passenger side engine would turn on even thou the driver side had the starter issue. Now it won't turn on at all no power at all to it. Do any of you recommend a shop In the socal area to take it to. Gave up on getting the starter in. Just gonna have to take the hit of 700 bucks or more on it.

Other than the slow starter...the boat runs...

Why not put it back together and enjoy until you have more time to address? Honest question you may have your reasons.

Best of Luck!
