    I picked my starter up today and put it back on. It works like a champ, or should I say like a Commander. It only needed brushes and a good cleaning. My rebuilder says he believes it had not been apart before. The odometer shows 99,000 miles. That's a big ole starter, looks like something off a diesel.

    Yeah, I thought about saying kill em all and let God sort it out. The defense attorneys would ruin their shorts.

    Just wear a T-shirt with the word GUILTY emblazoned across it & you might not be on jury duty very long.

    Regardless...I hope your starter issue gets resolved to your satisfaction.

    I took the starter off and dropped it off at the rebuilders today. I have jury duty this week so I don't know when I'll get to put it back on the car. If it ain't one thing it's another!

    Looks like the starter rebuild might have to wait a couple more days. Doc says heart cath in the morning.

    I'm in favor of starter removal, inspection, brush replacement and yes, a dab of high temperature grease on the thrust bushing or even replace that bushing period.

    And don't let this get your health in jeopardy!

    I suppose the starter will have to wait . I went to the ER with high pulse rate and chest pains last night and am now in the hospital. No taking the starter to the shop today. Hopefully I will get out later today and get it done tomorrow.

    Sometimes a good cleaning, brush replacement, and bushing lubrication will make them like new again.
