As you can see in this picture
the starter ring gear of my car is worn
compare the teeth in the top of the picture to the lower.
now ..i don't feel like doing the job .......and im hoping that i can put it off for a while ..maybe next year ..or 6000 miles.
every now and again the starter whizzes around (turns fast) and does not engage .......problem is sorted by slamming the car door.......been doing this for two years ......the problem does not seem to be getting worse .
well the flywheel is getting worse .......but its a horrendous job ..drive shafts gearbox out ..right pain..
the question is .......
i have a plentyfull supply of what is called "dry moly paste"
not any old stuff ...this stuff is £180 for 700ml...rocal ...i got it real cheap though.
why its called dry ..i dont know because its a wet feeling paste.
anyway .......will putting this stuff liberally on the ring gear..sort of just gently wiping with a paint brush ..sort of thing ..will it help to give me a bit more time..helping it engage without spinning .......i will file the teeth ..take away any burrs first ..
the flywheel stops in the same place's ..thats half the problem..hense the wear accelerates in those places
