Anyone have a cheap starter sitting around they know is good?

I can't get mine to start after a motor swap, and think it's not turning fast enough (300rpm for a split second before continual 150rpm cranking).

I've already replaced a CAS and battery though, and hate to keep throwing (new) parts at the problem, regardless of how nice the guys at O'Reilly's are.

Don't know why I didn't think of this. Could save myself lots of frustration. Of course if it doesn't start then, I'm left pushing it back up the road.


For the record, this car hasn't started since leaving me stranded 75miles from home after a weekend motor swap. I don't expect it to fire right up, and am diagnosing other problems, thus the need for a good starter.
