Re: Intermittent starting issue
For those of you who may be interested, grayc03 and I just finished replacing his starter for the intermittent issue he had with the ground through the starter for the load shed relay. The starter definitely fixed the issue. #2 transmission drop completed but this time with only one small issue. We forgot to unplug the engine temp sensor before dropping the engine. Only a $120 mistake as it damaged the wires right at the sensor so no way to repair it.
As for the starter, I took it apart and it looks pretty worn. My guess is reverse was used a lot by the previous owners as it only has 31K on the odometer. If anyone has ever measured the new brush length, I would be interested in knowing just how much these are worn. There is a ton of brush dust inside so I think they are work pretty much to the point of having this issue. The remaining lengths i measured are 9.59, 9.44 and 8.88 mm and I figure they are a good bit longer new.
Pictures attached of the job, the starter and the $120 mistake.
