For a very small investment you should be able to restore that starter for
a backup. The bendix is a cheap extremely common part, probably brushes
and that copper stud from somewhere. I learned that lesson half a century
ago, now there are more backup starters, alternators, and a few other things
on my shelves, than on my cars.

Don't forget to check the condition of the flywheel teeth. Bruce Roe

I set my car to factory spec 7.5 BTDC (or as close as you can get to that with the weird timing mark and a strobe light). The car runs fine.

Disconnect vacuum advance and plug hose when setting timing. Make sure idle speed is at recommended rpm.

Engine Ignition Timing

Glad it worked. On many of my cars the timing mark was on the harmonic
damper, mounted on a ring of rubber. When the rubber got old, the outer
ring moved around making the timing mark useless. After a couple of them
came completely apart, I replaced them on all cars with FluiDampers, can't
come apart. Bruce Roe

That happened to me on a '66 Mustang I had in high school. The outer pulley just flew off the balancer while I was driving to work. I opened the hood and saw the belt sitting on a smooth wheel.
