use a volt meter or test light and make sure your getting power to the starter with the button pushed. if getting power then it's starter brushes, if no power check the solenoid.

ok, 12 strong volts to the starter. how hard is it to change or repair brushes on starter? looks like i would have to go through battery box.

you have to take the air box out, 1 bolt on the bottom and unhook it from the carb and breather hose from the motor. there are 2 bolts that hold the starter to the motor (10mm head) and pull the starter off from the motor (might have to use a screwdriver and pry it a little) and don't worry nothing to fall down in the motor.

take a marker and place a couple marks on the starter to ease lining it back up during reassembly. then there are 2 bolts that hold the starter together (7mm heads) and take the starter apart. take the top off and note the washers and the same for the bottom. take the old brushes out (10mm head on the nut) and note how the washers are. put the new brushes in and clean the armature with some fine grit sand paper. put it together and reassemble.

this isn't a 350 starter but it will give you an idea of whats inside. there not that tough to do just take note of the washers.
