View Full Version : starter rebuild

10-15-2008, 09:01 PM
has anyone had a starter rebuild recently? i went to try and start my motor tonight and the starter was to weak to hardly even turn it a few degree's. it was a little weak before i rebuilt the motor. i have searched some of the vendors for rebuild kits but came up with nothing. i did find the brushes and the bendix side bushing but that was all i could find. buy the way it is a long snout automatic starter and it looks like it has three bushings in it. if anyone can help please let me know thanks.

Any local business that can rebuild modern starters can
rebuild yours. If there are none locally, check with
parts houses. Most have a rebuild and return program.
Studebaker International should have the parts

Are you sure it is the starter and not a weak battery, bad cables, corroded terminals or loose connections? You might try looking for these problems before you condemn the starter.

i am positive it is worn starter i was just jumping it straight from my van and like i said it was weak before the rebuild. the brushes are very worn and the bushings have lots of play plus what is a few more bucks after a couple thousand.
