Replacing Starter Bush

If it makes power or helps it get to the wheels this is where it is at

Replacing Starter Bush

Postby VWNuts » Sun Apr 02, 2017 3:30 pm

If you want to replace your starter bush without having to remove your engine, here's the easy way.

I removed the starter motor and found a tap that would thread into the old starter bush

Image

Wind the tap all the way into the starter bush until it bottoms out on the back of the engine case. Keep turning the tap, and it becomes a puller and the bush pulls out of the gearbox with ease.

Image

Image

Then put your new bush on the end of your finger

Image

Fill it with oil

Image

And then squeeze between your thumb and finger. This forces the oil through the bush to keep it lubricated

Image

I then use a bolt and nut that is wider than the bush to tap it back into the gearbox

Image

And tap it into place with a hammer

Image

And then the starter motor is ready to be reinstalled

That is pretty cool, not that I have ever had to do it. Thanks for sharing Nuts.
