Default HELP- starter drive/ bendix

Greetings, Newbie here so be gentle! I have a 1949 Flxible bus with a 1966 GMC 401 V6. The starter motor engages approx one in a dozen attempts. Can anyone help me with a part number/ source? Also at some point i want to add power steering to this beast- anyone have pump and brackets and such for sale? Thanks in advance

My starter had that issue in my 305 v6 and I had mine rebuilt locally. If you have someone local or in the area that can rebuild starters you'd be good to go. Have you been able to check all the electrical connections to the starter though? Loose wire will cause those problems.

Edit: I don't think a new one is available, unless the 305 v6 starter in the same. If you can supply some pictures I could check with my local parts store. Last I check 3 different bolt patterns were available. Two of which may be the "Big truck style" if there's a difference.

BR 549:
Rockauto.com lists a nine tooth drive, part no. SDN1A from Standard Motor Parts for a 351 V6 for $9.84. If you have the large truck flywheel on your 401, drive may be different.

Hope that helps.
Regards,
Steve
