I purchased a 1999 Chaparral 2335 SS this past summer and must say it's a wonderful boat.  As I was preparing to take it out of the water for storage last week (12/5/07), the starter made an awful noise and the engine failed to start.  I tried again and heard nothing!  When I looked in the engine compartment there was no starter connected to the fly wheel...it was in the bilge.   Both mounting bolts had broken off  and left the threads in the engine  block.

The starter is a gear reduction type.  Has anyone out there experienced this problem and, if so, is there a fix for it. I think this is probley a starter only problem and not related to the Chaparral.

Thanks for your help,

Bob Sullivan

I have never heard of that happening in any kind of vehicle

here in NY there might be a chance the motor had frozen by then

but I've had car motors that were frozen, and the starters don't break off, they just kind of buzz

the sheer strength of a good tensile strength 5/16" bolt is around 3,500 psi

thats alot of torque.  Even if the starter could provide that much torque, (I don't know if they do) the starter housing wouldn't allow itself to spin very far before running into the flywheel.  Might want to check out  the teeth on the flywheel.

Anyway something doesn't sound right there

just my 2 cents
