One trick to help learn is to use a little black magic marker and color the contact. Push the plunger down with out the spring and turn it back and forth. This should yield a pattern on the contacts showing how much metal to metal contact you have.

- I seem to recall you mentioning that before...Now if I can just remember it - I think I might print this trick out and stick it in my FSM

Were any of you having any major grinding noises when you would start your rigs? My 94 80 is my weekend warrior so it sits in my garage most of the week. The last few weeks when I go to start it, it doesn't want to fire up right away kinda makes the, wa wa wa, sound then fires up. But when I tried to start it up yesterday it made the most god awful grinding noise right after it started and continued until I shut it off. The grinding noise sounds like it is coming from the fly wheel area. I have a new odyssey battery and all of my battery cables are good. Wasn't sure if anyone had some insight before I start to rip into my rig?

Thanks.

Holy old thread revival... I guess I'd probably start by pulling the starter and replacing the plunger- could be the plunger isn't pulling back and the gear is getting caught in the flywheel? And may as well do the contacts also at that point, really the same job.

A buddy of mine had an 80 series starter stick on (engaged in the flywheel) and the starter then becomes a generator. Bad things can happen, electrically.

If you have to start the truck to move it somewhere, try smacking the starter with a hammer when it's in this 'jammed' condition. This worked for my 7.3 PowerStroke and bought me time (on vacation) until I could synch up with a dealer and get a new $tarter.

Thanks for the insight . Luckily my truck is parked in my garage and I don't have to move it.

Well I purchased a new remanufactured starter from toyota. I know I know I could have just rebuilt the old one but it was way easier just to buy a new one and install it. Plus the new one is a 2.0 Kw and the old one was a 1.4 Kw. Thanks for everyone's help. The grinding noise stopped. Total time to replace was about an hour.
