the housing. Make sure that the shift lever(24)
properly engages the drive assembly.
(5) Secure the nose housing (16) to the lever
housing with screws (9). Torque the screws to
(6) Install the end plate assembly (65) in the
housing. Make sure that the brushes (64) ride
on the commutator. Manually check that the
brush springs (70) provide firm contact between
the brushes and the commutator.

(7) Install the commutator end frame (61) and
packing (60) on the housing (104) and secure
with screws (54) and lockwashers (55).
(8) Secure the solenoid switch (36), pilot relay (6)
with bracket (8) on the housing with four screws
(1). Make sure that the plunger (44) engages the
shift lever (24) properly.
m. Adjustments. Adjust pinion clearance as follows:
(1) Connect the starter motor as shown in figure 13-
(2) Momentarily flash a jumper lead between
terminals M and G. The drive will shift into
cranking position and remain so until the battery
(3) Push the drive assembly (25) back towards the
commutator end to eliminate slack.
(4) Measure the distance between the pinion and
the interior nose housing wall with a feeler
gauge. Distance shall be within the 21/64 to
25/64 inch range (see figure 13-8).
(5) Adjust clearance by removing plug (17) and
turning shaft nut (19). Turn nut clockwise to
increase clearance and counterclockwise to
(6) Disconnect test set up.
(1) Install three screws through housing (37, figure
13-4) to secure starter to engine assembly.
(2) Attach battery cable connections and connect
wires to the pilot relay (6, figure 13-4).
