Operation

Before installing the starter motor, make sure the electrical terminals are secure by tightening the nuts next to the cap on the solenoid battery terminal and on the "S" terminal. If these terminals are not tight in the solenoid cap, the cap may be damaged during installation of the electrical connections and cause premature starter failure.

Replacement parts for starters

Our extensive range of replacement parts is based on more than 80 years of experience and manufactured exclusively to OE specifications. We can supply solenoid-operated switches, starter pinions, brush holders and many other replacement parts.

Starter Motor Repair

Remove any corrosion with wet and dry sand paper, and the commutator can be sanded and the back of a box cutter knife can be used to clean out between the segments. The insulation between the segments should be under cut to work correctly. Than an oily rag is used to wipe everything to help prevent any future corrosion.

Well one morning it happened again so I popped the hood and hooked up my jumper cables and turned the key, nothing. Huh, maybe I didn’t get a solid connection. I poked my head back under the hood and started to wiggle one of the jumper cable clamps and AAAAHHHHHHAHHA! That’s really hot hot! At the same instant I noted a plastic burning odor and noticed wisps of smoke beginning to appear on the plastic jumper cable handles. Luckily I have many years of electronics repair experience and knew instinctively to get those cables off the battery as quickly as possible and did just that.

Classifications

The present invention relates generally to a starter which may be employed in starting an automotive engine, and more particularly to a solenoid plunger assembly, provided with "O" rings, to ensure relatively smooth engagement of the pinion and ring gear prior to the contact closing.

Heavy Duty Alternator

The return springs are needed because the starter motor must not turn more than it has to in order to start the engine. The reason is partly that the starter uses a lot of electricity, which quickly runs down the battery.

STARTER

Starter is a brush-type, series-wound electric motor with an overrunning clutch (drive assembly). Field frame is enclosed by commutator end frame and drive bushing and carries pole shoes and field coils. A spline armature shaft drive end carries drive assembly.
