1945 to 2005 ------ and hundreds of starters later ? .-----Here is what I am doing --and it works.
I remove ALL lubricants from both end of starter . Yes strong solvent and high pressure air
Then I relubricate everything with plenty PLENTY of Dow Corning Molykote G-rapid spray.
Pay special attention to spriral grooves on bendix. ----over run cluch will work with grease inside.
Light silicone grease may work ----but I prefer to tell about things that I personally
Val Christian try starting with a seperate battery for solenoid. if it still growls --remove
starter and have it GROWLERED. ---- your symptom will be found on tons of starters
voltage on holding coil drops due to load . ---Been there hundreds of times. Lots of
starter solenoids have two stage pull in coils.
