Anyone happen to have an 1100 rotor laying around, or an engine with the rear cover removed that could get me these measurements? Diameter(width) and depth? I need to know so I'll have an idea of what puller set-up I need to take home when I get ready to replace the starter clutch crap on The Turd. tia!

"Shouldn't" being the operative word here...😁 Better to have and not need than need and not have. I was hoping it would slide off easily, but all manuals say to use a puller. We shall see! Thanks! (y)

When I pulled my '81 engine apart back in the day to find what all the "knocking" was about, the rotor came off pretty easy once the bolt was removed. It is a splined shaft.

When you have it out and before installation thoroughly clean the sprague clutch rollers and springs and openings where they fit. They tend to stick after a while from sludge and moisture residue build-up. Approx $100 for new (recommended). Saves removing the motor again to do this. My experience.

I have new rollers and stuff here, along with a new sprocket. Hopefully that's all I'll need. Less than $50 for all.
