Anyone have ideas.

Got the click. Then dead spot.

The bolts/screws were loose.

Brushes are ok.

But will replace.

The finger the tip is think is gone.
But That is the green wire. For 12v coil starting.

Can't speak to the brushes other than maybe the ones you mentioned yesterday from Amazon. The brushes or at least a number for the brushes is probably available from most any auto electric motor shop. You could also measure yours and see if something like this place could match them.https://www.graphitestore.com/Carbon-Brushes/Brushes

For the solenoid, if the coil is OK and plunger moves freely without sticking in the bore then if it is only burned or worn contacts you can get a repair kit from Napa. Believe the kit for the stock solenoid is the Echlin STK2https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/ECHSTK2

Whilst you are there, undercut the mica on the commutator. That gives the brushes better contact to the copper.

Just went through an Autolite for a 47 Dodge. The only thing I did in there was a bit of cleaning, lubing the bushings, and undercutting the mica.

The car went from runk--runk--runk cranking to ra-ra-ra. Can you hear the difference?

From Gerry's denver load. I might have a new armature..

But would rather save it for when an armature really goes.

Ordered new solenoid.
And kit.

My guess would be that you could use some of the pieces from the Chev solenoids.

I'm a little dumbfounded by the solenoid repair kits for 52-56 Studebakers as I can not think of any that had solenoid shifted starters. Mine sure don't. Perhaps the trucks did.
