If anyone is thinking about getting a new starter I might be able to save you some cash? I thought my starter was cooked and priced out a new one which was about $220.00 cdn so after slapping myself in the head a few times I just pulled it off and pulled it apart. I have never done this before, but it was real easy and after cleaning all the mud,dirt & sludge out freeing up the 2 siezed brushes which still had some good meat left on them, I just greased it all (dia-lectric grease)put it back together now the truck starts again and it's almost like having a new starter. Simple!! If you do it yourself you might want to pick-up a new brush-kit to replace the old but that's about it $15.00 as apposed to $220.00 cheap easy fix???

The same goes for the altanator... new bearings, brushes and voltage regulator and it's like new for a fraction of the cost of a new one.
