Useful as always. Comments below. Also, I've come across a post on
another forum which states that my particular starter motor's static
inductance is 70uH. Unable to verify accuracy of that, and the same
poster also stated that resistance is 40mOhm, which conflicts with the
32mOhm I have from two other sources. And don't know how useful to
know given the complex scenario of stator and multiple, commutator

It will be as nearly so as makes no odds.

But still need some? battery self-inductance?

battery is a conventional lead acid car battery - connectors are lugs
