looked a bit more at the starter.
i believe the starter motor is finished, atleast the bearings.
i can grab the end of the shaft where the gear goes and wiggle it around LOTS...
also, when the starter spins it makes a nasty dry, worn out bearing noise.
the end of the starter shaft where the gear goes also looks like it's worn.
can these starters be rebuilt?
how much for a new one from the dealer?
ones on ebay any good?
