I have a Yanmar 187D that has been having issues starting. I have been able to force the starter to engage by taping it lightly with a small hammer. This no longer works. I see that the replacement starter is $343 which seems outrageous. Before I spend the money (which it appears I'll probably have too) I am wondering whether you have starter rebuild kits?
Needing to tap on the starter is usually a sign that the brushes in the starter motor are sticking. A local starter shop should be able to put new brushes in it if that is the case. We sell all of the replacement parts to rebuild your starte but, by the time you add them all up, you have spent more than a new starter. It might be better to have someone local see exactly what is wrong.
The brushes on mine needed replacement after 23 years. That was 15 years ago and it's still fine. As I recall, the auto-electric shop didn't have the right brushes in stock and had to search.
