starter 1 was not fully engaging so I took it off and sprayed WD40 on it and now it will not engage and spin, 2nd starter will engage but sounds awful, can they be rebuilt or better off replacing?

First thing is, never us WD40 on anything unless you want to displace water.
Use graphite or silicon spray.
Replacements are cheap, just make sure and replace it with one you have it will either be a 10 or 13 tooth.
13 tooth,

I second Digger's advice - he pointed me to that company several months ago when my 1650 starter was bad. Great price and quick delivery,

(Thanks again, Digger!)
 
Water Displacement and it took them 40 times to get it right.. WD40
spray lighting hoses with it works good.

just tossin it out there.
 
Now, whether it automagically starts working or not.... Next task; Clean away the WD.

It'll do more harm than good - ultimately. I'd assume that if the brushes were not bad before - they've soaked up the WD by now.

That's good. That'll likely ultimately displace without damage but, be sure to wipe what you can as - while WD is fantastic at displacing water it is abysmal in how it attracts grit.

WD-40 is an acceptable cutting/drilling lube for aluminum...doesn't really work that great for much else, including lubricating anything beyond the time it takes for the carrier fluid to evaporate.

In my experience, teflon- and graphite-based dry lubes have worked the best on a starter bendix.
