Electric Starter System
Align the lines [A] on the yoke with the end cover lines [B].
Tighten the through bolts.
Torque - Starter Motor Through Bolts: 4.9 N·m (0.50 kgf·m,
Measure the length of each brush [A].
If any is worn down to the service limit, replace the brush
plate assy [B] and the terminal bolt assy [C].
Starter Motor Brush Length
12 mm (0.47 in.)
Service Limit: 6.0 mm (0.24 in.)
Commutator Cleaning and Inspection
Smooth the commutator surface [A] if necessary with fine
emery cloth [B], and clean out the grooves.
Measure the diameter [A] of the commutator [B].
If the commutator diameter is less than the service limit,
replace the starter motor with a new one .
28 mm (1.10 in.)
27 mm (1.06 in.)
Using the × 1 Ω hand tester range, measure the resis-
tance between any two commutator segments [A].
Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394
If there is a high resistance or no reading (∞) between any
two segments, a winding is open and the starter motor
must be replaced.
Using the highest hand tester range, measure the resis-
tance between the segments and the shaft [B].
If there is any reading at all, the armature has a short and
the starter motor must be replaced.
