So almost 2 years later, I am getting back to this. Sometimes life gets in the way of the toys...

I am going to pull the starter out this week and check the drive gear to make sure it is the right one.

If it is the wrong one, is this easy to change out myself? Anyone know of an instruction video.. I did some searching on youtube and couldn't find one

Any small parts that may go flying if I just try to take it apart? If i take it apart I can usually get it back together pretty easily.

You have a Delco 1108950 starter. Careful when removing as its very heavy. If you have a parts book study the starter diagram. The drive slides off the front of the armature shaft and behind it is a fiber/leather brake washer. In front of the drive may be a washer. The brushes (4) should stay in place. 2 of them are connected to the windings by small screws. Those will need to be removed to remove the brush plate. Don't remove the other 2 to help identify the 2 removed to help in re assembly. There may also be a washer at the very rear of the brush plate between the commutator and brush plate.

"Heavy" is the operative word! I found that if I was going to get it out myself that a hydraulic jack with a styrofoam "cradle" cut out of it to let the started down into worked well, Need to be sure that the jack has a solid surface on it (may need to attach a platform of plywood for the styrofoam to sit on). Once the started slides out of the opening in the frame it gets heavy quick!

And putting it back in is no fun either!!!

Bottom or top mounted? They're both different. Both use the same drive..10 teeth, but different in construction. Both will need to be completely dismantled. The bottom mounted is the easiest to re assemble. I have rebuilt MANY of both and doing a top mounted one now.
