I have 1985 85hp force outboard. When i got it the starter will spin but will not engage. I was wondering if there is a certain way it should be spinning, clockwise or counter clockwise? It spins free but will not lift to engage with the flywheel, any help would be appreciated.

Try lubing the shaft and working that gear loose on top of the starter. It is spring loaded and sould move up and down the shaft easily.

I have an '89 Force 35 HP and had it all apart and back again, feel free to contact me.
