    Default NH TC45D starter

    Recently my starter has started to sound like when you hit the starter on a running vehicle. I assume the gear at the end of the starter has an issue and I need to replace the starter. Thoughts?
    And, where is the best place to get a starter at a good price?
    Thanks

    It might be the spring return on the solenoid plunger is not allowing the plunger to retract completely causing the starter pinion gear to grind against the flywheel gear. Does the noise go off after the few seconds? You need to address it so you will not have irreversible damage done to flywheel, that would be high$$ stuff. A bench test of starter might reveal if starter pinion gear is retracting like it should.

    I have had best luck with having starters rebuilt locally. I was fortunate to find a great shop. A LOT cheaper than a new starter...

    JC,
    I release the key immediately and hit it again and it works fine. I am sure it will get worse and don't want to do more damage.

    If it were me, I would find a reman source from Fleabay and compare that to NH. if you are handy with wrenching then you can not damage it anymore if you carefully take the starter off, open it up and check the innards. It might only need cleaning up the crud and rust that caused the pinion gear not return like it should. Your starter is working right now along with the solenoid. It might prove to be just a simple cleaning and oiling the moving parts. You can also check the shape of the gear that might suggest a replacement is in order. a new starter is a lot cheaper than a split and flywheel replacement.

    JC,

    If you don't find a rebuilder easily, this source on eBay for a completely new starter is pretty cheap. It might even be cheaper than the rebuild.

    Just now I see a NH parts dealer has remanufactured ones for 199. They have 3 in stock. I should probably pull the old one and check it like you said first.
    Thanks

    Jim's source is great. At $104 and free shipping without a core is a no brainer. I myself never lose an opportunity to get in to stuff and break them apart. You'll need to pull it off anyway, I'd just give it a good inspection. I don't know where the oem is built but most of ebay stuff that is inexpensive is China made. I bought rotor for my van's front wheel, it was cheaper to buy that than have the oem rotors resurfaced.
