In principal, I agree, but Sophy's brush end bushing was clearly shot.  I
think I still have it around here somewhere.  The ID was out of round.  Not
as much as the flywheel end one, but obviously not as round as it should be.

I probably would have realized nearly the same increase in starter
performance by only changing the front one, but I had two (Thanks again
Neil) so opted to change them both.  Certainly couldn't hurt.
