Hi, and thank you for letting me try and assist you with your problem.

you can bring the starter to any automotive starter rebuild place

they can rebuild it for around 150

if you post a picture of it, i bet a PWC starter will cross reference to it also

I took it to a Starter alternator rebuild and they could not rebuild it One part the main one the Stator I think it was they could not match up.


there is one place that carries the complete starter and they want $637.00 plus $32.00 for shipping! EEEEK! in 09 the starter went at the same place for $100.00
