Another dead starter... swap parts?
Well, the bendix went bad on one truck a couple years ago. I bought a replacement starter off eBay - a twin to the factory one (a Mitsubishi).
The mounted solenoid or the motor itself died a few days ago. Solenoid pulls in hard (good "snap"), but the starter motor don't run. Either the contacts are trashed or the starter motor itself is toast.
Thing is, this one has a good bendix; the other one a good motor / solenoid.
Anybody ever tried taking one of these apart? It looked like the bendix was all made into the endframe of the starter motor...
