Does any one here have any experience with old Starters :whistle:

Battery is good, electrical is good. When she cranks the starter sounds like it can't get out of bed at times with a binding sound and then she turns.

Could it be going bad :2:

1. Could be one of the contact windings is broken/barley on if U know what I mean.
2. Bushing worn out & front gear teeth binding until it makes contact w/the flywheel then centers it self on the flywheel & rides it, thus, not binding/grinding anymore.
3. Ground.
4. Let me have the Jeep for a while to check it out & then I'll give it back in oh, say, 2199 :rolleyes:

Pull the starter & C what U have. If it is bushings/brushes, yes. Check the end play on the gear for slop as it rides on the shaft. U can ground the starter & jump it w/jumper cbls to see what is going on.

P.S. R U missing any bolts that hold it in :devil:
