Looking for a Lucas inertia starter [9 tooth] with late 66 or early 67 date code.
Prefer one that has been rebuilt/tested.

The field coil winding has corroded through and sheared off on my [16/71 dated] M35J motor.
Can’t believe it only lasted 48 years - stuff just isn’t made like it used to be :)

I will get a repro for now, but would prefer to try and put it back to original spec if possible.

I have had similar problems with starter motors recently.
I sourced a fully rebuilt M35G from a business specialising in modern auto electrics reconditioning. Also managed to find a fully reconditioned M35G from an 'old school' local auto electrical shop that was pleased to get it off his hands! Both are working well so far.
From my searching, everyone praised the older M35G with the moveable band covering the side entry brushes as reliable and repairable; the newer M35J with the brushes in the endplate were considered a lot less reliable and harder to repair as the brushes wore through the armature plate which was too thin to be refaced.
