failing starter ? 200 1992

When it gets below zero (F) my '92 245 won't start. The solenoid clicks but the starter motor does not turn. The battery is less than a year old, voltage is good when it won't start, cables are tight and clean. Starts fine when it warms up a little.

Could it be that the brushes are just about worn out and when it gets cold enough they don't make enough contact to pass enough current to spin the starter ? Other ideas ?

Thanks

Greg
