Sullivan starter mod
The Sullivan starters are the best in the business but on the 24V ones sometimes the switch assembly doesnt work that good (or gets stuck in ON position). The solution (even on brand new starters) are to take it apart and modify the connectors slightly. If its an old and worn starter you need to take some sand paper or a file and clean up the connectors as they can get corroded and carbon build up from the sparks... Bend them according the illustration so when they are in contact they have full surface connected so to speak. Add some normal non silicone grease also to the connectors, that helps in reducing the sparks.
Ps, the mod works equally good on Sullivan 12V starters.
