Im still looking for a SR2 starter spacer ...

But i also had the original starter rebuilt at a local shop -- to a tune of 230$

I need to drill and easy out one broke off stud that is used to bolt on the starter and then i can give it another try ...

well,

Gary sent me a spacer along with a rocker push rod .. the spacer does not fit my housing -- just slightly bigger. The spacer fits the starter nicely ...

I took the original starter to a shop  -- the owner is 85yrs old and recognized the numbers as a starter from a boat. I'm like, yea .,.. that's a big possibility.
So he said he will return it look and operating like new -- good to me !!!

Honestly, i don't like not having sources for wear parts ... i have no idea how long ago this starter failed -- or why. I hope i can source a spacer for this china clone ...

Engine rotation is the main variable that needs to be identified. A picture of your flywheel housing will do it, or engine serial number in most cases.

In North America, a Delco is most commonly used on the Listers. We also have a few of the Lucas units around.

It's not the winding that is a problem ... I think the magnetic field has degraded ... the gear is half way out and does not retract from the flywheel.

The starter had probably been overheated and collapsed the power in the alinco magnet.

I hope so too ...

The OP might be long gone .... But Gary did respond to email ...
And I'm still trying to workout what I need.
I have pictures posted into a different thread about my SR2(ccw)

Still tryingto find a rig spacer ....

The starter I last received seems correct ... just sitting too deep into flywheel



I can see the image:

Yes from the picture, that looks to be what to be what your looking for.

However, be aware of the following:

1) Ensure the direction of rotation of the starter motor is correct, as Lister's definition of direction of rotation has caught many people over the years (NOTE! If your engine serial number has SR2A, the A indicates anti clockwise rotation)

2), You will need a spacer to go between the starter motor and bell housing, like so:

      https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265239226729?hash=item3dc17d6969:g:evoAAOSwdjVg-bIX

 This is for the HA series that use the Lucas CA45 starter motor, but the general shape is very similar to the SR engine.

3), Finaly confirm that the number of teeth on the bendix is correct.

Ok, im to the point that the roatation and tooth count is correct ...
I need the spacer ... but will the original studs be the correct length or will they need replaced with different lengths?

I already broke one stud off removing the original starter.
