    It was leaking from the corner and the 3rd brake light.
    Since it's a friction fit gasket that normally isn't sealed they didn't use sealant when they installed before winter, but went ahead and sealed the gasket today as well as sealing the 3rd brake light.
    I'm going to put a new brake light in anyway when I have the roof painted but until then hopefully it's licked!

    I could dig it, as long as I get to keep my big 4x4s. To offset the Latino-ness of me driving that thing. I'd take it to the park and b-ball courts on Sundays and show it off to my homies

    @Speedytech7
    So speedy, I reluctantly pulled my starter (I just did starter contacts and plunger like a year and a half ago). Nothing looks or looked off or amiss. But pushing the plunger and then messing with the Bendix you could feel as if two decades of brake dust could be jamming up those fine mechanical tolerances. So pulled the brushes and stator and armature or whatever those are all called and blew them out and put just a lil Teflon grease on the Bendix gear etc. Reassembled and the Bendix no longer has that little intermittent catch like before. Installed and starts great. Glad I didn't junk it. The Koyo bearings in it still are smooth as butter and brushes still had lots of life left.
    You were spot on with your diagnosis

    Have a look at my builds --->
    Glad it was a simple fix! I helped @Digiratus do his starter on the V6 the other day and those bearings that support the Bendix had exploded and launched their BBs into the bellhousing. So I suppose that's a maintenance item, I dunno why but I always assumed it was supported by a bronze bushing not ball bearings
