It's the teeth on the quadrant that have a habit of snapping off. (item 4)

I've rebuilt 3 gearboxes all with the same problem - all had the first tooth to make contact with the input shaft missing. It could be that more teeth would break with continuous use but once ones gone the action is pretty poor and the owners stopped using the kickstart.
