i guess it depends on what the price of a new starter solenoid contact is at the parts store. rockauto has the kit for about $14 plus shipping. DORMAN 02349. you could also possibly use a rubber washer like i did with my spare starter. i am cheap enough that i would probably use the rubber washer and get a bit more life out of the contact that is there.

ya. that is exactly how simple it is. it will likely take more time to take the starter off the truck than it will to fix it. just make sure to wire bush or wire wheel the terminals and spray them with penitrating oil if they look rusty or rough like they do sometimes.

that contact looks pretty chewed up and lots of debris in there. how did the contact on the plunger look? you could try cleaning that up and putting is back together to see if it works any better.
