RV8 24v Starter Motor
« on: June 30, 2019, 12:57:52 PM »
The starter motor on my 24v 101 V8 has disintegrated and needs replacement.

If anyone has a spare they do not need please let me know  :)

Pm or mobile 0411102488

Cheers

What part has disintegrated?

Mine also failed. The auto elec told me they didn't exist and I really had a 12V starter. When I plonked it in front of him he was genuinely surprised. Anyway, he dismantled it and told me which parts I needed. I sourced the parts, he rebuilt it and happy days.

So, can it be rebuilt? This might be easier than sourcing a new or s/h one.

Hi Mick - yes anything can be rebuilt for a cost.  The armature windings and commutator are wrecked, as well as the bushes and their holder.

AJ does not have a new starter but he does have new armatures so I have ordered one from him.  I have an old 12v starter so will take the end cap off it with the cast brush holder in it and I am in Newcastle at the moment so will go around to ALL 4x4 who have new brushes.

The field windings in the body of the starter seem undamaged so I will reassemble when I get the parts.  If the field windings are shot I will get them rewound.

The one new 24v starter I have been able to find (uk) are 5 times more expensive than new 12v starters.

Thanks

Thanks Geoff - but they are Flickr hosted pics so the only thing downloaded to the site is link to the Flickr site not the actual pic themselves.

Cheers

Yep. That looks disintegrated.
And that Price Quote for the job looks accurate, too!  :o
