Wierd sound on startup comin from I believe starter sounds like very dry bushings or grindy type scrapping!
Who has heard this and what did you do! To correct it ?
Whats a new starter worth or can I rebuild the old one. Who makes these starters?
Are they easy to change ,as they seem simple enough

eBay has them from $77 to $130. I doubt it would be a difficult job on the Pin.


You may try to top off the battery first. My 13 started scratching and freezing. I charged the battery and it stopped.

Common problem in wet climates; particularly where they salt the roads in the winter.

Yes; it's the starter and you can easily rebuild it. Clean up the armature where the carbon brushes ride on it and in between the contact area on the armature. Remove any rust on the plates bolted inside the casing and elsewhere. Put it all back together and give it try.

I should mention the solenoid but not sure what I should say about checking or replacing it or if it can be replaced. I haven't done this myself (dry here in AZ); just read about it.
