battery polarity has nothing to do with the bendix on your starter.
It works like this......the bendix engages the ring gear on the flywheel & turns the engine over. When the engine speed exceeds the design speed of the bendix (because the engine is running) it disengages. (and I can never remember what RPM that is) All the new style positive drive bendix does is allow a higher engine speed before it disengages.
So how does any of that deal with battery polarity?
