    Keith, the type of starter (presuming original) will be identifiable by the label on it. Worth the effort to scrub and squint at this aspect.

    I rebuilt mine with a new solenoid, brushes and bearings for less than $65 in parts and a casual day of my time. A post-mortem suggested the solenoid was at fault, as brushes were worn but still adequate.

    EAI in Melbourne frequently have Valeo starters on Fleabay just under $300. You can also get the Chinese copies for slightly less through (among others) Phillips Electrical Supplies in Sunshine. I'd not buy a commercial rebuilt unless I knew it had been thoroughly gone over and was otherwise totally compatible.

    p.s. Mine was a 9-tooth Valeo, for the AL4 auto box. Some transmissions may use a different tooth count.
