    Cool story bro!

    But seriously, mine did that when it was cold. Replaced the plunger and it was perfect.

    Lots of people don't realize you can rebuild these starters for cheap. Good job!

    its a Toyota truck and that's all the modifications needed
    How hard was it to remove? It looks like a Pain in the ass to get out. How long it take to rebuild the solenoid.

    parts cost me 40 bucks baby !!, pretty easy to do , dont need car lift , first take off negative battery cable , go to right side fender wel and loosen 12 mm nut on side of starter , and then unclip the plug under starter ,crawl underneath truck by trans and u will see 2 14mm bolt and loosen and your done , when u rebuild ur starter you pretty much just change the copper contacts inside , take ur plunger you will see copper around it and sand it down till you see it shine
