I've had them come loose & put them in place using JB Weld, or high strength slow cure epoxy. If not broken into a jillion pieces, you can glue it all back in place. Epoxy works a bit easier due to it's not quite as thick as JB Weld.

If the bushings were worn bad, that could have caused the armature to hit the magnets, breaking them.

Man that's an awesome deal. We want to get a couple of our starters rebuilt. I am hoping we can get just as lucky. I know ours will be a little more due to having to get them rewound but that's nice :D
