[Vwdiesel] dead Rabbit

in my defense, I can say that I at least figured this out sitting on  
the couch before I went and confirmed it
yes, it does need a new starter
but it was also pointing uphill when I tried to start it
and pointing uphill when I tried to pop-start it in reverse
and pointing uphill when I tried to tow-start it going forward

so when I pushed it around and coasted downhill frontward it did  
crisis over, no engine damage, just effectively out of gas b/c on an  
incline w/ low fuel in the tank

anyway, does anyone have a good starter for an '81 Rabbit they want  
to sell?
from the dealer they cost almost as much as the car
