Both those quotes sound high to me. I live and work in Silicon Valley,
which is far from the cheapest place to have car repairs done. I've had
two gas tanks cleaned (though not powder coated) in the past few years and
the cost was $100 to $125 each as I recall. There is a local electrical
shop which has rebuilt numerous starters, alternators, etc. for me over
the years and I think a Lucas starter rebuild ran about $100 last time.
Contact Pacific Auto Electric (PAECO) in Sunnyvale, CA for a quote. I'll
bet you can ship it to them, have them rebuild it, and ship it back to you
for a lot less than $300.
Good luck -
