I have a 1983 420 that has been repowered with a P 220 G of unknown age. About 15 years ago I was having starter problems so I pulled the motor and found that the starter face plate/ mounting bracket was broken. This let the starter float around enough that it would not engage the ring gear properly. After buying a couple pieces of junk starters on the internet, I broke down and bought an oem starter. It lasted 15 years but sounds like it has happened again. Have not pulled the motor yet but I am pretty sure what I will find. My question is, has anyone tried repairing or replacing the mounting face plate. The starter still seems strong.
