It looks like 1 brush is wore out in the cap, am I seeing that right?

 

Looks that way to me.  Time for new brushes, and clean the armature pickups.  The windings on the armature look to have been hot at one time, but may still be fine.  Between each armature pickup contact & the armature shaft, there should be no connection, so test before spending a dime.

I like to use a fine scotch brite to clean them. I use the red ones myself. green will work also. Fine emery will work just go easy.

 

Like Daniel said I would test it with the meter to make sure each section isn't shorting out.

And when I need to buy these things, do you have part numbers or a website where I can order them? Thanks

You will check it using OHM's scale on the meter. I am sure one of us will be around when you got to test it. Good luck. Parts I am not sure. Daniel may know?

Doh OHMs sorry...tired. Would you happen to have a diagram depicting the terminology for this starter. I'm not to familiar with these armature pickups, etc and a photo with things labeled would help a ton if I am looking for parts.

I'll do digging for parts sources when I get the time.  The commutator pickups we refer to are the squares on the end of the armature where the brushes run.  Between each of these & the armature shaft, using an ohmeter, should be no continuity, or in other words, an open circuit.  If any of these show a connection to the shaft, then it is toast & replacing the entire starter would be the best & almost only way to go.

Would anyone happen to know the model number for this starter? It looks like this model I found on ebay:

Just so when I find out if this is bad or not, I can just order a used or new one. Thanks

I am not 100% sure Pete. I would have to look up your engine model if I had it.

 

But I do believe Daniel has been down this road and knows what starter you need.

Starter # 35765A is what it calls for, but other starter #'s do also work.  The one above definitely should fit perfectly.

Well do I feel silly. I had a dream last night that it was a bad battery. So I brought the starter into work and bench tested it to a fresh battery. Works fine! So my battery was bad. :( But that solves that problem! Thanks for all the help guys.

 

Will update when I get the starter back in and new battery installed.

Well I feel siller now. It bench tests fine, but when I reinstalled it just now with a brand new battery, it buckles and doesn't want to turn. I was able to move it with my finger. It wants to move but it's tired. I'm just going to order a new one and scrap this one.
