    Thanks all for the info and the input.

    The one on the left is OEM and had to be removed with pliers. The one on the right is the new one but a looser fit. The original seals looked like the second picture in the linked thread. They were not driven all the way down to the spring shim.

    So they just kind of set on ther, or are they an easy press fit?
    Maybe a call to cruiser outfitters is in order?

    They should have a friction fit down over the valve guide. Maybe the tolerance on the cup is greater than original manufacturing.

    Thanks for everyone's input. I decided to try some Fel-pro ones from Autozone. They ended up being repackaged Viton parts, made in Japan with steel bodies. They looked exactly like the originals and worked perfectly:beer:

    Bring it up to CMCC, you may just find some like mindedness.

    I got to know my new to me LX470 really well. Changing a starter in a 100 series is nothing like changing one out on the 60!

    Now I can continue with the baselining!

    It looks like you just laid a starter in there, not that it's installed right there. Crazy that's where it's installed.

    That is ridiculous. Very un-Toyota-like.

    Picked up an ancient lathe to play with. It's gonna need some work but should be fun. Many thanks to @iptman for picking it up for me. 20170722_152121.jpg

    When it went I told my wife, "it's super easy, I've changed lots of starters..." at least now that I've done it, i could probably do it in half the time

    Now I get to source some new bolts to replace all the ones that were missing

    Well, I need to build a stand and much less janky motor mount before I can really run it. I took it apart for a good scrubbing and lube.
