Congrats on getting the starter out. Try taking it apart and cleaning it up. Be careful with the brushes, those wires can get broken easily. Clean the bushings in either end and lube them with just a touch of moly grease like car suspensions use. Brushes shouldn't be more than $10 and are simple to replace. This might do it unless the commutator is obviously not smooth. If that's the case, call around to several auto electric shops for estimates to repair it. It'll probably cost at least $40 but shouldn't be more than $75-$80 max.

Good luck,

thanks for the advice. I will try it out. I have a book that i think shows the internals of a starter. I know what the brushes and commutator look like. question though, where would I go to purchase new brushes, and are they all the same, or do I ask for something special? Thanks again, Phil you have been a great help

Good question. Any auto electric shop should be able to get the brushes by using the Delco or Prestolite number from the generator tag. Most likely, NAPA will be able to do this too. All will depend on the person you are dealing with at the counter. Take the starter with you so they can see the tag.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
