I have a 1983 Evinrude 35 h.p. outboard, and am having trouble with the starter. It's stock, FYI. It will always spin, but it won't always throw the gear on the starter shaft up to start the motor. I had the battery and wires all checked, all are ok. The battery is charged once a year, and continuously charged by the motor while the motor is running. Nothing else uses the battery that the engine does. Got any ideas as to what's wrong?
