Q: Hi Steve,
I am the proud owner of a 1967 PA-28-235 and I like to do real good preflight inspections, but I sometimes run into something that puzzles me.
At my last preflight I discovered a tooth missing on what looks to me like a flywheel. I think the teeth are engaged by the starter to start the engine. As far as I can tell, the missing tooth hasn't caused any starting problems. It starts just like it always has.
Will the missing tooth cause a problem? What do I have to do to fix it?
