Here are a series of shots in order showing an exploded view of the parts as they are in the starter. This should make for a good reference when you might be rebuilding and forget which part goes on which end:

This shot shows the bushing out of the end plate and the 4 washers that fit on the brush end. The washers should be 1 thin, 1 thick and then 2 thin.

Image

In this shot, you see 3 washers that go up against the plate. From the inside out, it is 2 thin and then 1 thick. The plate is shown with the bushing still in it since I didn't take this one apart. But the old bushing from the '81 starter is shown. Both the large and small gaskets that go on the plate are shown.

Image

In this shot is the drive end. I did not go through and pull the bearing off the shaft for the picture, but it gets replaced with this kit. It is hard to tell, but that black item inside the large o-ring is a drive seal that goes inside the drive end.

Nice job Gerry. The washers that you mention are different thickness shims ( and possibly one end washer) which are used to set the end float in the armature against the bush.

I had an extra one that was doing just that, cranking slow if at all. A week ago I dropped it off to an armature shop that I've been using for about a decade for automotive stuff. Yesterday afternoon it showed up rebuilt with a bill attached of 45$.

Even though I had asked for an estimate, I gladly paid. I didn't even need it, I just wanted an extra. With all the trial and error stuff that I'm up to the starter is a time-bomb.

Kudos to you McGovern. You are clearly way more confident than myself in this case. ;)

That's a fair price for the job. :yes: There's a hole in the wall type of shop in a near by city, that always has an abundance of vehicles as well as people bringing starters, alternators, etc, to be rebuilt, or traded for one already rebuilt on the shelf. Great place, seems as the owners get ready to retire, the head wrench buys it, :good: been there for as long as i can remember. One of those places you never hear a bad word said about, :nea: by anyone that's dealt with them. Nothing but praise for the quality of their work, your part is actually rebuilt with new pieces inside to make it work like new, & dipped in a chemical bath to clean it up to look, like new. :yahoo:
