any good parts house

You can get a good starter lots of places. I dont really like the Zone as I think they get there stuff from Mexico were they just replace brushes and slap on some black paint and call it good.
NAPA auto parts is my choice.

yep

Mango man is right find a good starter rebuild shop a mom and pop place and they do a good job. Had one done many years back and it cost about the same as a a store bought one. But unlike a store bought one you know it was done right with pride.

I have also heard about over the counter starters being rebuilt on the cheap.

At my local re-builder they turn the armature contacts, replace the bushing, brushes and anything else that has a problem. The starter is like new when they are done.

The only way to go other than new.
