If you get the 20 rebuild kit off ebay it will have the plunger and some brass pieces youll need to change, then swap gear and bolt it back on. i never thought of just cutting the plunger but if i ever have to and dont have the rebuild kit i will remember that. just posted for more info for those that decide to do it. Several ways to tackle this I reckon.

I'm not sure why you had to do all that? I just swapped the OEM nose piece/ gear onto the new starter and bolted it back on
He did not get the correct toy starter. I got a couple of toy starters but neither lined up correct so got the correct from the auto parts store.
Have some spare parts lol

There is a sticky here that talks about alternate starters.

As I recall, there were three - and the largest of the three required some metal work to create clearance.

The next size up is in the sticky "links" under the forum Rocket III Resources.

The picture of the starter in my post is the old motor and solenoid with the Toyota nose attached. Just put it together to keep all the old pieces in one spot. I bought a new starter and swapped out the nose. This way everything is new. I would have liked to install a new bearing on the bendix but I didn't want to wait and just wanted it back together.
