Advice on cleaning a starter motor

Recommended Posts

Just pulled my bosch starter from a 300 TDi due to slightly sluggish starting (compared to my 200 Tdi. I have stuck the 200 starter on the 300 and it is much better. Had a look inside the Bosch starter and all looks OK (brushes etc) but there is a lot of black dust and carp in there. Waht is the best way to clean it up without doing any damage?

errr....no. Used to great effect on many yacht starters. Admittedly they get a little salty which the diesel is very good at removing.

I meant commutator rather than slip rings....and of course let it dry out before refitting it.

Used the same trick on alternator rotors, winch parts, anything that gets covered in oil/muck/salt. Not so good with mud....
