Working on my starter. I can measure a high resistance (leak) from either insulated brush or contact button to the shell. I thought I would try replacing button insulators and pulling field coils loose and try to insulate them with insulating varnish or sealing wax. What think yee?

Now I get no leaks. No reading between brushes and shell.
Sprayed field coils with insulating varnish.

Well I haven’t bench tested it yet. Need to pick up a 6volt battery. Cleaned up commutator, it barely fit in my little lathe. I put in new brushes and bushings. Took a while to get new contact button soldered in. I ended up using three heavy copper irons heated on gasoline camp stove. Hope it works!
Starter switch was ‘leaky’ too so new one is on the way. Two new tires showed up today. Water pump needs attention next. Having a ball!
