What to do next though?  As the old one seems to work OK on the 'bench' I'm tempted to clean and lube it, and give it another try.  :-\

Although I did notice earlier when I was testing them both, that the new one seems to have a lot more Ooomph!  So I wonder if the old one is just tired and hasn't the power to turn the engine any more.  :-\


Is there anywhere local that still rebuilds starters and alternators? They're not as common as they used to be; the firm I used for thirty years shut recently. They did all sorts of work for boats, industrial motors etc, and could recognise what car a motor was from just by looking at the nasty oily scrap plonked on the counter. Cost considerably less than being rebuilds from middle men too.

If you’re going to clean and lube it why not get a set of brushes for it at the same time, job done then

Oh hell now you're getting technical Rae!  :o  ::)  ;D

Although it looks easy enough on YouTube!  :y                                                          ::)                                                 :-\
Just do it. What's to lose?

Yes there used to be back in the day.  Not sure if they are still around though. Will investigate!  :y

Yes I thought of that, and I also wondered how hard would it be to fit the old cog to the new motor.  :-\

I'll see what the response from the supplier is though before I start cannibalising it.  ;)

Pull the old one apart and see what's what.  ;)

yep  :)
not uncommon for the brushes to be stuck due to carbon build-up but you can also measure the brushes and compare

Also worth checking the contacts that energise the motor if you can get to them.
