(a) Check the pinion gear.
If the gear teeth are chipped or cracked, or worn, replace the pinion gear.
If there is no damage to the pinion gear, check brushes.
(b) Check the brush holders and brushes.
If the brush holders do not hold the brushes in the correct position, replace them.
If the brushes jam and do not ride on the commutator correctly, reset them.
If the brushes are worn unevenly or are less than half the size of new brushes, replace them.
If the brushes are ok, return them to the starter.
Make sure the chamfered side of the brushes is away from the spring.
