It's not electric, it's mechanic...
Found the issue with engine not cranking. Starter, connections, relay, and ground are good. The issue, in my case was in right-hand cover. I suspect it's the starter idling gear. When I close the cover and not tighten the screws, the engine cranks in both directions pretty freely. But if I tighten screws closer to the front of the right-hand case (around the starter clutch), the damn thing is tight as a mthfkr. I ordered a new gasket, just in case the first one i got was too thin. Also, i might have been too generous with the grease for the housing spaces of the idling gear. Any of you guys had this before?
Edit: just rewatched Roach's video, and I can see the washer is on the outside of the gear. I'll check it on Wed and hopefully that'll fix it.
