So, we got to the point that the starter shaft is fully exposed, but we cannot separate it from the end of the starter cover (brush cap) and cannot get access to the bushing. There’s got to be a simple thing we are overlooking. What’s the trick to removing the shaft from the brush cap?
Ha. Just saw the video that Mike Vaughn posted on my other thread. Many thanks. It shows the answer to this question starting around the 4:30 mark.
Here’s the link.
