the most common problem is one of the leads to the motor brushes is broken within the starter. Would have thought you have measured voltage between the wire running to the starter and ground if it was a brush problem.  The starter is easy enough to repair. A set of new brushes, a couple of screw drivers, two alligator clips and a little RTV is all thats needed.  This link will get you a video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-1ftV1dMNg#t=19.  There are other ways of holding the armature in place while putting the can back on, but the vice grip does work.  You might consider a getting a spare starter for the future.  Good luck
