preformed packing (51).
(c) Install insulator washer (50) terminal stud
bushing (65) braided strap (45), flat washer
(43), lockwasher (42), and hexagon nut (41).
Do not fully tighten nut at this time.
(d) Install brush plate screws (56) and tighten.
(e) Tighten hexagon nut (41) to 20 to 25 foot-
pounds (27 to 34 newton-meters).
(9) Replace oil soaked or cracked electrical brushes
(57) or brushes which are less than 0.656 inch
(16.66 mm) in length.
Replace helical springs (58) if tension is
under 2 pounds (0.9 kg).
Remove nicks or accumulated dirt from
plunger (7) or bore of electrical solenoid (5).
Replace electrical solenoid (5) if tests show
it to be defective.
Replace plunger spring (12) if warped or if
free length is less than 2.296 inches (58.32
Replace shift lever shaft (18) if worn or
Replace shift lever (11) if shaft holes are
worn or elongated or if pads are worn or
Remove slight nicks or burrs from pinion
teeth of drive assembly (29).Replace drive
assembly if teeth are cracked or excessively

(1) Check that all parts are clean before starting
(2) Lubricate spacer washer (37, figure 13-9) and
flat washer (54) with a thin film of petrolatum V-
V-P236 and install on armature (36).
(3) Soak new oil wicks (27 and 32) in SAE 20 motor
oil and install in lever housing (3) and stator
housing (21). Secure wicks with protective dust
caps (26 and 31).
assembly on armature do not attempt
to install starter housing and electrical
brushes loaded by helical springs.
(4) Position electrical brushes (57) in electrical
holder assembly (44) so that tangs of helical
springs (58) rest against side of electrical
brushes and hold electrical brushes in retracted
position. Once starter housing (6) and electrical
holder assembly (44) have been installed on
armature (36), tangs of helical springs (58) may
be placed in their normal positions on electrical
brushes (57), tensioning electrical brushes
(5) Install protective dust cap (70) and new
preformed packing (51) on starter housing (6).
Install assembled housing and electrical holder
assembly (44) over commutator of armature
(6) Thread field coil brush leads through inspection
holes in field frame. Install armature (36, figure
13-9) into field frame.
