Default Perkins starter

Went to start my generator and the starter made a loud ratcheting sound, as if there were broken teeth. I pulled the starter and the teeth look fine on both the starter and ring gear. I bench tested the starter and it fully engages.
The genny ran fine last time I used it, a week ago.
I didn't start or shut it down under load.

Just because it engages does not mean the clutch in the drive is not slipping.
Which is suspect to me.

Are you sure a strong 12 volt signal is present when turning over, , turn the flywheel with a screw driver making sure their is not a bad spot some where on flywheel.
