While at MG2014 in French Lick my starter failed. It would spin but not
catch the ring gear. I finally found a few minutes today to replace it with
a spare off the shelf. The pinion gear on the starter motor had detached
from the bendix. Is this a common failure? Or just some oddball thing that
could only happen to me? By the way, my wife never complained about having
to push start the midget for a whole week.
