My father owned a 1978 Westy and had cut a hole in the sheet metal beneath the rear bench, for easy interior access to the starter, so he could smack it with a prybar and hammer every time it didn't want to fire. Worked every time.

A lady from Minnesota called with a starter problem. The brothers advised that she keep her existing bat in the car to whack the starter when needed although she had bought a replacement starter. Sounds like she has the situation under control.
