St4s starting problems
After a monthís trouble free motoring, suddenly my 03 St4s issued forth a very mechanically sounded banging noise upon start up. Sounded like metal to me First time I rocked it gently, then she started fine and ran as normal. However, tried again when home and the deaded noise was back. Sounded like it was coming from starter set up, inside LH crank case so stripped that down. Everything looks fine, with last visual check to do on sprag. Have removed circlip holding sprag in place but ithe sprag assembly doesnít seem to want to come out of the housing it sits in. Wondering if Iím missing a trick here - apart from requisite mechanical knowledge!
