Starter rebuild?

Does anyone have any recommendations on a shop that rebuilds starters?? I am looking to have an old one rebuilt so that I can have a spare.

Yeah...go to Ararat. on Midwest drive in Scarborough.. about 100 bux give or take. Again these are not completely rebuilt. they use what's still good and replace what is needed. otherwise yaknow you're spending between 150-200 for a new one maybe more.

Second Ararat. Its likely they will even have a starter off the shelf for immediate replacement.

This place is great. They took my LT1 Camaro alternator and rewound it to B4C (police package) specs. $110 for a rebuilt alternator if you ever need as well.

Ararat X3. They've been around since Jesus was a cowboy.
