Default Ever see a starter do THIS??

Determining the fuel pump was my problem, excessive cranking caused this to happen to my starter. Was just replaced back in Feb. of this year. Advance didn't want to honor the warranty, but after talking to the manager they did. They blamed me for it, said I beat it with a hammer. I think that is why I got the refund, because the employee accused me of breaking it. That'* a no-no in retail. Besides, most of these guys are just wannabe mechanics working in a parts store.
