Universal 5424 / M30 starter motor

I just changed my starter motor for one of these, on my 5424.

Starter Universal Marine Diesel 5424 M 30 M30 Kubota | eBay

Works great, so far. It was a nightmare getting the bolts out of the old one, but the new one is not so tricky as the OD is smaller, so it's much easier to reach the bolts.

Painted it gold, first, of course.

The old one had a problem with, very occasionally, not turning over.

PS, if anyone likes rebuilding starters, you can have my old Universal one for the cost of shipping.
