Avoiding trouble.

The usual overcautious Jimmy grabbed a spare starter motor when he bought Cubby. With 200k km on the clock as well as being an automatic Jimmy hates the idea of a failure (yes it's happened on trips before), on inspection the starter grabbed from a wrecker was pert near as good as new so I just swapped it for the old one. The job took way longer than it should have but I didn't have an extra set of hands, or even arms that work in a decent manner.

The old one had a fair amount of brush wear but rather than give it a spruce up I'll just stick it on the shelf, just in case.
Judging by the crud I'm going to have to look a bit harder for that oil leak.
