My first starter was totally worn out, the bearings went, and the starter basically ate itself [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Everything inside was trashed. I saved the bendix, and sure enough, about a year later, i needed to swap it into my replacement starter!
Its really easy to do. basically all you do is remove the 2 long bolts, remove the cap, remove old bendix, insert new(er) one, and put back together! Its about a 5 minute job. But inspect the starter to see if its worth fixing before you do it. It would be silly to change the bendix on a starter that has a bad field in it (read=insulation worn down, or off)
