    Starter motor refurbishment -

    trying to refurb. a second valeo d9 e48 starter - I did one new brushes works great - second pic even painted the casing blue - it works great. got the brushes from ebay confess it was cheap to do that just solder one of them onto the windings. I did a BOSCH one also it had four brushes and all these clips at the contact end much harder - these valeo ones only two brushes seems really easy to work on. but this one, the armature doesn't seem to have continuity - but it doesnt look bad anywhere doesnt turn when reassembled I am right in thinking each copper segment should be connected to the next one ? I noticed there two really chunky wires connected to each segment none of them seem to look damaged although there is a small gap on one or two of them - Ill add more photos with a marking to show what I mean not sure how to solder any gaps - copper solder? might be more info on the site already I will look. maybe I can check the field is good using a compass - yet another visit to youtube maybe LoL any one who already did a few also would be great if you know already posting on the off chance no worries if not hope its in the right section also
