    What started my whole problem was the clutch hub nut coming loose 3 times and the last time I put it on to stay but I still had the bang because the damage was already done to the starter ring gear on the clutch basket. When I replaced the ring gear I also noticed the clutch hub bearing had a flat spot in it also and ended up replacing both the starter ring gear and the clutch basket to the tune of about $750. Replaced the clutch nut with a hardened one and had it bleeding red loctite when I hammered it on to 150ft# torque.
    I have been bang free ever since I replaced these items over 2 years ago.

    One other thing is do you have a rebuilt starter in there now? If you do, pm me for more info, it has to do with the starter gear itself Iphone2016 186 (2).JPG

    It's specific for 2005 plus. Baker is only place to get it and they make you buy the whole basket at the tune of $400.
