"I kinda figured that Glen..."
That's what I was afraid of - so - your saying it should be the starter - not the flywheel...
I'm pretty sure it was the starter cause it was starting to sound sick before I pushed it one toke over the line...
I guess I'll have to buy her a new starter....???

I know I'd redeem myself by buying and installing a new starter - she likes how handy I am - just changing the oil impressed her hehehe - I can't imagine what installing a starter would do. She might just fall in love with me.

It would ark and weld that connection to the metal piece and totally fry all your electrical. Now this is word of mouth from my dad (who's brother is this uncle) so I'm not sure if it's this extreme, but I didn't want to find out for myself. So I followed his and the books instructions and disconnected the battery.
Still waiting for that email...

all alacrity in this matter is meritorious The ring gear will ware, then you are into a big time repair as the tranny or engine will need pulled.
If the worn bendix on the starter is used too often the spot on the ring gear will also be chewed up (note here the engine only stops at certian places <span style="text-decoration:underline">every time</span> it is switched off - this due to the piston compression. So you are hitting the same spot each time with the worn starter bendix.
Now the good news, you can change just the bendix on the starter and do NOT need to change the entire starter.

Any idea on the cost of said part? Should I just get a re-build kit for it and go from there? Just wondering how hard/technical this would be - a new starter would cost close to $132.99!!! Soooo....just looking to minimize the cost of my stupidity - the thing is getting worse and worse, so I think it's time to tackle this problem before we get stranded...
