Starter Operation On My 932-101??

My electric start got pretty loud and grinding sounding then seemed to growl and not engage the engine At all . This was over time . During time I used the pull cord mostly. Anyways I just pulled it today for a look see. The starter gear is ok as is the whole flywheel.
Bench testing it mine slams out and spins fine. The gear jumps out and stays there. When I push it back hard enough it will release and go back in but only then . Is that how itís supposed to operate ? Seems wrong to me . Hereís a pic if it posts.

The gear should release when the starter stops. It needs lubrication. Pull off the plastic cap on the end and apply lub. More info in video.

I haven't had trouble with mine, so I haven't messed with the gear first-hand. But I believe the gear should pull itself back when you turn off the starter.

If it's sticking, and staying out, that sounds weird to me. If it were mine, I'd try some dry lube on the sliding gear. You want it to slide freely, but you don't want to attract grit and dirt that could bind it up. I have some Finish Line Teflon dry bike lube that I like, it goes on as a liquid, then dries completely, so it doesn't attract dirt.

This is the stuff I use, I also have a spray-can version:

That video is very informative. The info about the bracket wear issue in particular . Iíll give lubing that tip a whirl. Thanks.

Here is what it look like under that cap. I wire brushed and oiled it up well. I put the washers on there too and tighten that starter on the top like it was shown in the video. Those mounting screws on the top actually bottom out before the washers went on and it was loose. Now it engages quietly and no more grinding sound. All ready to rock now. Thanks for the advice🥳
