Anyone had one of these apart? They're aftermarket types often used to replace early series wound Lucas types. They use a Jap permanent magnet high speed motor with reduction gearing, so rather kinder on the battery.
Mine is out of warrenty, and sticks occasionally. Motor runs, but pinion
not engaged. It got quite a bit of oil on it, and the garage cleaned it
when sorting the leak. But that could be coincidence.
It's a awkward job to change on the street. So don't want to take it out
only to find it can't be fixed and then have to order up a new one.
