Starter overhaul

I had a few problems with my starter last summer. Sometimes the solenoid didn’t push the bendix drive ahead. So I had to fix this. A solenoid for an over 50 years old starter motor is not longer in stock at the local Bosch dealer… Hmmmm. But I found one (!) on ebay! This was in new condition and I bought it. $ 60 including shipping. I picked it up last friday. Today I reassemblyed it, an I guess its running perfect. I just have to get under the car to install it. Any volunteers?


Parts cleaned.


A “new” solenoid from 1956.


Ready to install.

The “to do list” is getting shorter. And the spring is getting closer.
