Thats alright big fella glad to help on the other side of the world. Its all easy now and you are now the northern expert, lolI'm changing the brushes on an 05 starter and can't get the **** brushes to stay while fitting over the commutator.
None of the info above applies for the fitting of the new Warrior starter motor brushes as far as I can see. Totally different set up with the springs, plate screws and access.
Has anyone on the forum ever changed the brushes on a Warrior starter? if so, any advice or pictures out there would be much appreciated?
UPDATE...... done and dusted with some help from Heff..... thank's Heff
I'll post some pics later.
This look like a solution that would work for mine. I've got Joey's old starter in there for now and it works, but mine looks better.Here is what I used recently to hold the brushed back. pieces of 14 gauge copper wire WITH the insulation on them. I tried it with no insulation and they would slip out.
16 gauge probably would of been better but 12 gauge would be to big.
I also found it easiest to take the gear off the end of the shaft. That way I can then set the armature, I think it the right term, in the brushes and then slide the center housing, with magnets, on. Just be careful the magnets will pull that housing down at approximately 9 million MPH. Then just set the top plate on and bolt it together
