Starter Motor

Did you manage to sort one? It's probably a struggle to find a decent one at a guess?
I think my original one in my 1998 S Reg is on its way out.

May consider re-condition also.

and how long will that last..

i would contact a few shops to see what it costs to refurbish it

I bet for 50 euros, all they did was unbolt the sleeve, slip out the winding shaft, clean up the commutator, blow out all the filth, lube up the bearings, put that lot back together - then cleaned up the starter solenoid contactors.



If you give them one that still sort of works, life is pretty easy.

But if you give them one with burnt out windings or a burned solenoid then it becomes a bigger job.

If I need brushes for a motor, I simply measure them, then hunt for something as close as possible on ebay, then sand paper them down to size to fit. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40%7CR40%7CR40&_sacat=0&_nkw=carbon+brushes+starter&_sop=16

he opened it up.
cleaned and lubed up some parts.
and machined something ..?

i asked him why he did this
because i left it there to be refurbished not cleaned.

he told me that that the inside parts were fine and didnt need replacing.
and if it fails in the comming time i can take it back to them.

so yeah you were wright hj  Embarassed

i then put the startermotor+a new battery back in the hijet and geuss what
it started like a new car  cheers

Probably turned down the commutator to clean up where the brushes contact.
