Question about babbit bushing in starter mounting bracket that holds steady the bendix when its engaged with flywheel. Mine has .005 " clearance. My starter locked up bad last fall. What do you use to replace this bushing?
Tinkering Tips Vol.11 says a Model A piston pin bushing will work , any experience with this?
What else?

The area of the starter mounting bracket where the Bendix drive stop nut runs can be repaired.

I use the Model A wrist pin bushing, it is a repair you can do without shipping and waiting if you need it right away. You do need the tools (reamers) to do it correctly. Never had a problem with any I have installed
