[Healeys] FW: Starter resistance - is futile

Ok, the starter is working again. Many thanks for all of the replies. It was not related to electrical connections, the cutoff switch, cables or solenoid.


I ended up changing some trust washers at each end of the armature shaft.


I have attached a photo of that shows the armature shaft where it exits the front plate (with the restraining spring sleeve removed). There is a depression where that fit restraining sleeve perfectly. Should that pocket be there or should it be smooth. I think the restraining sleeve created the pocket over the years by the pounding action of the starter motor.
