BSA A65 will not kick over at T.D.C.

    My 69 BSA A65 engine will not kick over from the top position if the engine is at T.D.C. If the engine is rolled off that point then it will kick over from the top. If you don't let the kick start all the way back to the top, then it will kick over again, even if the engine is at T.D.C.

    The engine has been rebuilt but it had the problem before the rebuild as well.

    Any ideas? or what specific part would be worn out to cause this problem?
