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

Postby bcroe » Wed Sep 26, 2018 9:45 am

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.
