Hey gus I just finished a new turbo build..rods,pistons,studs,springs,etc.Fired it up fine and made one heat cycle.I let it sit and checked for leaks.Started it again and heard a noise at the starter.Found the starter clutch gear cracked.Anyone ever see this before??

That is a first for me, normally the dogs go bad inside. I have never seen or heard of a gear breaking off of the starter clutch

Had a closer look today.I installed a new tensioner shoe and bolt when it was apart.Hard to tell but it looks like the bolt is sticking out a little farther than the old one.Im gonna compare it with another set of cases tomorrow.There were some scratches on the bolt.But i figured it was from the gear rolling around.
