If you're there in Kemah you'll find Starter and Alternator shops in Pasadena, Baytown, LePort that can properly rebuild your starter. I'm of the general opinion that most rebuilders just replace the worst parts and don't give starters or alternators a proper rebuild procedure. Local shops still only replace the worn parts but they do much better than the third world bulk rebuilders. The original starter worked for many years and will work properly again.

Volks, My starter on the 90 Carat has been turning slower as of late, such that if the van isn't driven for 10 days or so it will take a jump to get that last turn on the starter for light-off. I am considering one of those gear-reduction starters that Go-Westy sells; he makes a compelling case for them. Anyone had similar probs that the gear-reduction starter solved?? Any other solutions. I understand all starters are rebuilts now and these can be not near as strong as the new ones were.
