Removed starter & tested on bench soleniod engaged,smoke noticed from rear of starter, still smoking after power removed. I took unit to an auto electrican, who claims fields are shot, so it appears I require a new starter. Any other advice is welcome

Hi Don, An auto electrician is ok but is he? familiar with repairs to starters etc? If it is smoking then it may well be the coils but could be any other component. Replacement field coils should be available especially if its a Lucas. Only problem is by the time you start adding parts, postage and labour it might be cheaper to have a new one. My main supplier Bence (Bepco) supply the Iskra range of electrical items but there are probably plenty of alternatives around.

Yes it is a Lucas M45G 26220A starter motor.
I've googled spare parts etc, plenty in England but as you say parts + freight,that would replace coils, but what else would I need to replace. A new starter will cost 310.00 Au Do you have a spare starter and plan a trip overseas soon ?? (lol)

Hi Don, Depending whether your lucky angel is on the job, it may just be a stuck brush overheating / arcing and warming up all the accumulated muck. Depends on whether any serious damage done to the commutator. If you email me direct I"ll try and send you a worksheet if you fancy taking the job on yourself, Set of brushes wouldn"t cost much if that was all that was needed.
