Starter Motor Bits ,replace

I Have a starter motor that has fallen a part on me, it turns well, but the retainer for the bendix has broken up. Found the spring and c clip but there is some kind of bearing on the end only got half of this, it must have broken up.
Tried to rebuild using a washer i machined and pressed on plus circlip in grove but just flew off, the bearing i think turns separately on the shaft against the bendix spring.
Need a replacement kit to hold bendix in place or cheap new ,second hand,start motor, strugling to find at moment, any surgestons please

It'll probably be easier to find a pull start and the right top cowl than to buy a starter.

Thanks for the advice, dropped on local guy retired but still repairing from his garage starter motors and alternators sorted bendix retainer out within ten mins, went on to notice oilite bush gone on com shaft he did not have one the correct size on O D going to machine it at work tomorrow and we will build it up and hope fully all will be well
He wanted a fiver for sorting retainer out, but will cross his palm with a bit more than that
