Inside the case or outside?

I swear i pulled this stator cover and this seal spacer was on the inside of the case on the shifter where you see it, but there is nothing to keep it from being chewed by the starter gear if left there so is that right??

I have the manual (real service manual) as seen in the pic, makes no mention of placement on the shaft.

Needs to be there, it keeps the shaft from sliding 4" out of the case. It's somewhere like #14-16 on the diagram.

One just like it on the far end of the shaft also.

Push it inward and it will stop against a shoulder on the shaft. The stator case normally keeps it away from the damper gear.

I thought it should as well. I can slide it all the way to the starter gear and figured it would bind.

Shouldn't that be a snap ring that goes there and not that washer.

Yes, there should be a snap ring there.....then the "washer" would go on next?

There was no snap ring on mine (edit - there is a snap ring), when I pulled the stator cover, the washer fell out on the floor, almost missed it. Same as reported by others, a few have reassembled without the washer.

Check the stator cover inside where the shaft passes through, I think there's a 'collar' that protrudes inward. Pretty sure it's the cover that keeps the washer against the shaft. (or the retainer)

Now, there may be a snap ring on the inside washer, I don't recall exactly. Didn't go that deep.

He's touching the washer in the pic, I zoomed in close enough to read his fingerprints. He's wearin' a big pinky ring too. The washer does look kinda thick until you zoom in.

Maybe there is a retainer clip there somewhere, ... Outside washer butts up to that, and not the shaft? But I do know the washer is the last piece to go on before the cover.

Pretty sure the retainer gets involved when people smack the shaft to install the shift pedal, knock the retainer off and the shaft is in/out sloppy. Some have installed a piece of hose on the shaft to keep it outside the case, when they forgot the washer or knocked the retainer loose.

The only thing i know is that those two snap rings don't go in that one bevel on the shaft. Each are half in sharing it. Youd expect then the shaft slides out, the second snap ring goes all the way in and holds the shaft out. After that, the second snap pin and washer are in front of the starter gear.

So after doing that, all is well. The issue was the first snap ring slid over to the second one allowing the shaft to slide into the block more than normal. Once the second snap was in place it pushed the other snap past the starter gear and now touching the gear is a non issue.

That's what I was seeing in the video you deleted.

The stator cover does have a 'collar' cast in that pushes inward on the washer, against the retainer.
