I finally had the chance to pull the starter last saturday. The starter drive is not gummed up at all (free movement). As far as the bushings are concerned, the bendix gear has 0.015" of total side play on the shaft. The bushing the shaft turns in looks good (no detectable side play).
I have noticed that the starter gear does not move all the way to the end of the housing (lacks about 0.125"). In addition, the spring moving the starter gear seams weak to me.
Another bit of info - I have replaced the fly wheel / ring gear with another identical unit. The grinding occaisionally happened with the old one, but did not start with the new one for a while after I installed it (the old flywheel had issues with the splines on the crank).
At this point my guess is a combination of the starter gear not going out far enough and the weak spring. Any other words of wisdom?
One other point - I need to replace the brake shoes as well (this is a 60 Standard). Will I need to remove the platform to get the brakes off?
