    The starter is fixed, gave it a huge cleanover and installed it back in the VX, that job sucked
    Thank you Frenchie!

    Sorry for the late answer, yes you can save and fix the starter if the rust is not too much, like i told you the brushes were stuck in their support.
    Good job saving it and if you put plenty of grease on the nose over the oring it will go back in easy .
    When i do this job i also clean and repaint the carcass and reinstall the 2 large orings with gasket sealant.

    lean over the engine , your wrench will fit underneath the exhaust manifold, 12mm socket with extension and ratchet will do it

    MadsMax,
    I am kind of curious:
    Were you the original owner; why would one boat have this problem and not the other; for the starter to be that corroded, was the boat flipped; is there water in the hull; water in the oil; corrosion elsewhere??
    Anyway, great thread; congrats on the fix,
    RickM46

    Hi, how did you manage to get your hands under the exhaust. It's almost impossible to reach the 2 screws.

    easy to reach if you lean over the engine from the left side, 2 12 mm bolts on the rear and 1 10mm nut for the wire, pray the starter out of the block and if frozen bang it out from front to back with a long socket extension between block and exhaust manifold, you will feel it.

    After almost two hours, I finally was able to get it out. Thanks for the tip.
