  1. The starter just grunts

    New Bushings in and new brushes....finally!!! I've cleaned everything and it's plum purdy.... haha. Now, the big silver thing and small copper thing on the end of the shaft...should I sand on them with a fine paper just to smooth them up a bit? Was the starter painted? If so, what color? Thanks for all your help!!! Earl

    No work on the starter. My heart acted up and I was in the hospital a few days, sent home with "DO NOTHING" instructions. I hope I can get to it next week. Doing nothing is the hardest work I've ever done!

    How do I get the bushing out of the rear cover without destroying the cover? Many thanks, Earl

    My NAPA store can't find the solenoid boot. The salesman wanted to know if any of you could get the part number for him. He searched and I've searched at home, and can't find anything either..... Thanks in advance, Earl

    Willie, I carried the starter to a starter/generator repair shop. He bench tested it and it ran great.

    Well, I got the starter off the car and tested it....works like a charm. Where can I get the rubber piece on the end of the solenoid? What do I check next????? thanks to all, Earl

    Bob, I looked for my shop manual but could not find it. I picked up another one on ebay Hopefully I can check the starter and solenoid on Saturday or Sunday.

    I know I don't know things, but have enough sense to ask before I goof something up---What, where is the S terminal.

    How do I test the solenoid? How do I test the starter? I have it off the car.

    Bob, How can I tell if the motor is seized up?
  13. The starter just grunts

    On my 1955 Roadmaster, It sat a while-- like 5 months-- and when I went to start it, the starter sort of growled or grunted, but no more. I figured the battery was dead, so charged it, or at least tried to, and it would not charge. So-- new battery--same noise. I jumped the battery post on the solenoid to the other one and got only a spark, no noise at all. Any help would be appreciated, Earl B.
