« on: August 10, 2010, 01:53:32 PM »
My Galaxy has a reverse wound starter. BBC motor.  IT USUALLY WORKS, SOMETIMES, EXCEPT WHEN YA REALLY NEED IT. LOL Parts guy just said "huh"? 
So what are my options. Would love to have a new one.  Or will just new brushs fix mine?  Thanx . Raider

David, thanks for the link. I pulled the starter tonite and pulled the back plate. Holy Moly, rust city.  Sprayed the starter out with electric cleaner, blew it out with air and put it back on. It helped somewhat. Tomarro I,ll pull it back apart and go thru it and see who,s who in the zoo. I,ll see if I can save it. Thanx, Todd

If the windings are still ok (insulation not burned off) just recut the little grooves in the commutator (round copper pieces epoxied to the shaft) lightly scrape the grooves with pointy razor blade, then lightly sand with 220 sand paper.  replace the 2 bronze bushings, lube with white grease (lubriplate) install new brushes and test. :)

Good to go. Pulled the starter apart and cleaned out all the crud. Chucked up the armature and lightly sanded it. Then used a scotchbite pad. The brushs were in great shape. Reassembled and bingo, I got a nice working starter again. Saved $160 denaros ;D  Thanx for the tips guys.  Raider

Good job! I come from the old School of Repair, not just replace.  ;)
