Re: Shrieking Starter

My starter needed cleaning once. Before, it made a funny noise on 
disengagement but since then it is just fine, now over 110,000 miles.

Nevertheless, a cross-reference to another starter is a valuable info, so if you can, please send it.

  Fred,  My brother played around with his starter ('97RS) a bit and 
  indicated it was straight forward.  He ended up with bad windings or 
  something and had to replace the starter.  Used a Toyota or something 
  that was a direct fit and much less expensive (apparently better too!).

  If you want the contact info for that starter, let me know and I will 
  post it for you.
