You are shameless, Kevin.
I'm a 1200 guy, but it was my understanding the 1100 starter was a reduction starter. If that's the case, could the drive gears be sheared. From the description, it sounds like the darn thing grenaded.
\If I understood correctly you connected the vent to the catch can, that won't work as that can is not vented. The crank case has to breath or it builds pressure and will push oil out the path of least resistance.will be looking at the starter. what about her pushing the oil out?
