1971 Ariens electric start issue

I was getting intermittent turnover with the electric start. I'm wondering if there is a faulty safety switch attached to the engagement lever I'm not seeing. I am attempting to start her with everything out of engagement.

Common 120 volt starter ??

If some times the engine spins and sometimes the engine doesn't spin then it's all in the starter, starter wiring or starter switch.

The interlock or safeties only prevent ignition (spark), they don't stop the starter from spinning.

Some show and tell:

A lot of times the old starters can end up with dead spots on them.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.
