This car runs daily but Wed. the starter sounds like
gravel. Normal temp it starts- cold the gravel sound
to nothing. Ok 2hrs to get it out cause I cant see
made short its dirty comm. and brushes cleaned and
turned commutator and cut the segments. I shine a
light in the bellhousing and with finger and kind of
rounded a coil. Installed (one tap its running), now
the Magneto now works. Aint worked since day one.
So I think when we installed engine and installed the starter my kid must have knicked a coil. so
use caution installing starters. Now this kicks!!
big difference on Mag. but I got oil drippin from the bendix cover?? yes new gasket but its gotta be
not true..

Here's what I did on my Bendix cover:

I cleaned the gasket flange thorougly, then ran a medium bead of Permatex Ultra Black on the entire gasket flange surface.

Then, I set a piece of wax paper on a smooth, flat surface (I used my kitchen counter), set the bendix cover onto the wax paper, then set a book on top of the cover to hold it down. I let the Permatex cure overnight.

The next day, I peeled off the wax paper and trimmed off any excess Permatex. This left me with a perfectly flat surface to mate with the gasket.

I lightly greased both sides of the gasket and installed the Bendix cover. No leaks so far!
