    starter clean up or rebuild

    Just removed the starter as part of my exhaust upgrade. It is absolutely filthy. I am thinking of bringing it to a local starter/alternator shop for a cleanup and possible rebuild. It worked perfectly fine before removal.
    Any advice?
    thanks

    For probably the same cost, upgrade to the Remy Eagle starter. It's half the size, half the weight, gives you more room to work with when you're in there and leaves your PR starter as a back up.

    Sounds like a good way to go then. Is this something I could source locally?
