Flawless installation (gasket not included), robust instant torque.

Works like new,,,,wait, it is new,,,,and works.
3 stars only because I haven’t tried it yet. Installed on an experimental O-200 still on the engine stand. I’m assuming it will be great.
SKY-TEC STARTER KEYSTRT C12ST2
My Starter Clutch on a Cessna 150 key start died. Forget trying to get it rebuilt No one is rebuilding them. So your only option is used (good luck on that) or a new starter. I chose the Sky Tech because I did not want to have to remove the bearing. This is a direct replacement starter. Unbolt and bolt new one on. Works great. But will have to do a revised Weight & Balence. But beware even though it is a brand new starter. Hartzell still charges you a $200 core. They just have to rip you off one more time. Hope this helps somebody.
Per Sky-Tec: You should utilize a starter solenoid in conjunction with the starter. We offer a variety of starter solenoids. Please make sure you match the starter solenoid voltage with the voltage of your starter/aircraft and to choose which assembly will best suite your application.
The gasket is included in the box.

Yes this would require a starter solenoid.
