big red three wheeler starter removal

how do you get the starter off,it is getting power to it. when the button is pushed but nothing happens,the starter has been dragging lately and today when i try to start it it just clicks.i have checked the terminal on the starter with a meter so i am sure its getting power and the wheeler has a new battery.....thanks

Unhook the positive battery cable, first, and unbolt the cable from the starter. Now, remove the two bolts from the rear of the starter. If the starter still won't come out, unbolt the starter gear cover (4 bolts) on the left side of the engine and remove the reduction gear and it should pull out then.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

thanks,thats what i was thinking but was afraid there might be some gears or something fall off when i took the starter gear cover off,do you know where to get a new starter, the place around here that rebuilds starters said they could fix mine for $78 but i thought that was high.i seen them on ebay from $46 to $136 new,thanks again

Just pull that cover off slowly and watch the gears. The shafts might stick in the cover and come out with the cover. Just watch how they come out. Even if you don't see how they come out, it's not hard to figure out how they went.

Yeah, $78 is a little high. I would just rebuild it myself or order one from Ebay.
