before you trash it.

Go to your coil hold down cage. Pull it off the wheel well, clean all the contacts, and re-install.

If it works , your headlights should be brighter too...

Just changed mine out today on my 1990 FJ62 with 124. Looked original. Bendix gear was very worn and would get stuck from time to time. Got one from Cruiser Corp for $160 shipped. 1st 5 tries was a quick sight grind on start up. I'm thinking it was possibly mating to the already worn flex pate. Time will tell. Good luck on yours.
