Just a quick question about the bronze bushing and oil seal.

The vendors sell the new two piece bushing with the seal, or you can order just the seal and cut your original. My question is this; Why cut the bushing into two pieces? Why not just cut the end off and add the seal at the bendix end of the snout instead of the armature end?

Pep, I installed a seal on a starter a wile back seems to me that there was an actual reason for splitting the bushing. I am going to look at some of my starters and see if I can jog the memory a bit. But it does work very well.

If you put the seal at the Bendix end, the bushing won't receive lubrication. The bushing needs to be oiled. The seal is placed at the armature end to keep the oil out of the starter.

Am i wrong, the bendix is in the area of the flywheel and it is running in oil. So it is my feeling that the benix will get oil. the seal that was put in when I had the front bushing installed, it should get oil.

thanks

I agree with Ken. I installed my seal on the armature end to allow oil to the bushing. Works great.
