Took starter apart. Marked everything to help line things up for assembly. A few pictures. It uses a funky brush assembly ring that stays in starter after you put it together, it sits in down around the bearing & below the brushes from the factory. You can assemble it by yourself (maybe), but four hands makes it easier.

Great photos. I did this last year. I found that you can use pins (I used straightened paper clips) to hold the brushes back while sliding the armature back in. Once the armature is seated, pull the pins and the brushes seat against the commutator nicely.

As much as I don't want to, I will probably it rebuild as a winter project nest year. Who knows if I'll get lucky enough to find another $40 refurb again ;)

Just because I didn't feel like I wanted to do it this year, doesn't mean I won't next year....I'm a very fickle bitch sometimes.
Really, I'm not feeling "working on the Vic". I have to do an oil change, tires and new brake pads. I don't feel like playing with anything else I'm not even motivated to change the stater. I just want to ride it, make my vids, vlogs and do regular maintenance for a change.... thumb up
