Default Replacing starter...does this look extra dirty?

Just took out my starter. Inside the bellhousing it seems a bit nasty. Was just wondering what level of funk I should expect inside. I know my clutch fork boot isn't on properly, so possibly dirt could be getting inside?

Yeah man, it doesn't look too bad. Stick in the new starter and don't look back. When it starts leaving a big spot at work then worry about it.
