You smoked the starter, or the engine smokes once it started?

Is this a daily driver?

FWIW, the starter on my '74 R90/6 may be original, and if it's not it's at least 12 years old, and still going strong.

..and as a side note, I got 10 years out of a westco battery, and only replaced it because "damn I have this thing for 10 years.." It was still cranking fine.
