I`m going to assume you are a novice so be patient with any obvious steps.First get a manual
sometimes you can find one at the library.
Be sure to unhook the battery before anything.
I can`t be too specific but basically examine how the starter is mounted and make note what needs to be removed to get the starter out.
When removing any parts/bolts etc make note how they are assembled any spacers washers etc..Draw a picture or take a picture.Unless something is broken or really gummed up you should be able to work the bendix loose.Otherwise you will need to replace it.
It has been years and years since I did one but
if you look it over carefully you should be able to tell how it is assembled.It is spring loaded so it returns to its idle position.It seems like the last one I did had a bolt at the end that held the assembly on.This will sound screwy but be sure the starter is rotating in the right direction .Unless someone has had it apart since it last worked it should be fine.Sorry I can`t be more specific I`ve repaired a few outboard starters but haven`t done a bendix.
