Starter Motor Brushes

I have a Knacked 4 brush Nippon Denso starter (actually off a dumper), and given that they are widely interchangeable in lots of engines, was wondering if any one knew a supplier of brush kits for these ? I've had a squint ont web, and can find some similar, by not exactly the same.

A replacement starter is 300 , .. service ex from Denso UK is 150 + 30 carriage inc u/l of old unit .. but all I need is the brush array which should be about 30 (which is all they'll do to mine and turn it around )

An update .. New starters for the quoted dumper were actually 630 + Vat from Thwaites I mean its a starter motor.. not an engine

Nippon uk, were star geezas they charged 150 for a recon, but turned 2 of my units around in 2 days for each and did a very good job with a high quality finish, replacing gears as well as motor bits

Initially they supplied a retrofit, but the orientation was wrong, and the dumper wiring looms would not stretch to the solenoids...... a phone call resolved this to my satisfaction ....... recommended

I post this because, unbeknowns to many of you... you will be using these starter motors on engines that these guys cover .. Yanmar, Kubota, etc etc

My mate used to have his own auto electrical business - he made more money from reconditioning starter motors and alternators than anything else. In fact he made so much he has now emigrated to Perth!!!

I used to give him a hand sometimes - so easy to do IF you can get the parts......

A guy who used to work for TVR in Blackpool redid both my dads for nothing. Great guy sadly moved away when they shutdown/moved.
