Finally got the last bit off the starter. The top plate was corroded onto the shaft. Polished the shaft and bushing up and it spins freely now. Tomorrow I might put everything back together and see if it spins up with current. Only problem is I bent the top plate a little and it won't drop into place in the housing. Need to work it back to flat.

I have always referred to the part the brushes ride on as a commutator.

Clean it up, put back together and give it a go, might be surprized.
