Re: Time for new starter motor?
Before you go chasing prices on new/secondhand starters, do yourself a favour and pull it of, and give it a little inspection (disconnect earth lead off battery first!!!!).
You might find that the drive is fingered, or worse, the ring-gear on the flywheel is shagged, or it may just be the solenoid.
If you're handy with cars etc., you could fit a solenoid rebuild kit through it, or you could take it to a good auto elec and ask them to fit one for you.
The other thing you might consider (which is simple, cheap, and affective) is to put a relay on the starter circuit. This will give the solenoid a stronger, sharper throw.
