Replaced Crankcase cover, Now won't start!
I replaced my right crankcase cover. Didn't have any problems removing it or taking off the ignition pulse generator and replacing it onto the new cover. The one thing that did happen is. . .the drive shaft and gear for my starter clutch fell out. It didn't look like a big deal so I just put it back in (there's a hole that the post slides into and the gears need to mesh, that's all.) But now, when I push the ignition, the starter relay clicks (sometimes once, sometimes continuously) and the tach and display cut out for a second and that's it. It won't start. But I pushed it down the street and bumped it and it ran great. But when I shut it off, same ****, it wouldn't start again. I'm wondering if that gear needs to be oriented a specific way for the ignition timing to be right or if I have some other completely different problem. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks.
