I have three starters, one more good one and the one that was just removed. It will be taken to my favorite electrical repair shop to get refurbished.

I found out the starter can be removed without loosing the header on the right side. The worse part of the job is removing and reinstalling the wire going to the relay. It is best done from under the car, not through the header.

The engine started up, three times, with no kick-back.

Oh, bye the way, the alternator is not “perfect” as I had stated. I need to remove three shims to get it right. It will do for now. It is about 1/8″ off. We will see if the belt stays on at 7300 rpm.
