Trying to Repair Toro Electric Starter
 
Hi, I'm working on a Toro Snowblower CCR 2450. Electric starter is not engaging and disengaging from the flywheel. The electric motor seems fine.
I removed the starter from the blower, took the pinion off the shaft, cleaned the shaft and pinion. Reinstalled it in the blower. Pressed the electric start button, the electric motor spins, the pinion dropped spun the flywheel but did not retract back up. I moved it back up manually. Pressed the electric start button but now the pinion will not move down to engage the flywheel. Tried WD40 sparay but did nothing. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks
