A first distance between a position where a point-of-action end abuts at a rear end surface of a push-side abutting portion (flat washer) forming a part of holder and a rotational axis of a pinion, and a second distance between a position where the pinion abuts at a front end surface and the rotational axis of the pinion have the relation of first distance>second distance. Thereby, after starting an engine, even when the pinion is rotated at high speed, the push-side abutting portion is less likely to rotate and remains stationary relative to the lever, and even though the push-side abutting portion begins to rotate, it is rotated at a lower speed than the pinion..
