Ludwig has something to be thankful for...a new starter moto

amazing how much faster it spins than the old one, but installing it under a two bbl manifold was a PITA--two quarts of starter motor into a one quart access! Lots of weaseling required.

Old motor's problem was the brass rear armature bushing--it had chewed up its plastic sleeve and was turning with the armature, causing lots of extra drag. Needs brushes too. But it did last 30 years and 200k, so who's complaining.

Hope all had a nice Thanksgiving...it rained all day here in Ohio, but the turkey was great (and indoors.)

and I'll have a good-as-new starter, since the rest of the motor is just fine (solenoid, Bendix, armature etc). Sure beats $$$ for a rebuilt one! Anyway, the money I save can be used to keep my Renaults and Fiats running...

PS-the original alternator made it to 189k on the '73, and is still original on the 69 (as is the starter) with 211k!
