Reviews

The 149-12LS starter fits a Mooney M20F Executive with a fuel injected Lycoming IO360A1A engine. The fit guide lists a starter that is too long and will not fit. I called sky tech and found out. Check the installation drawing and measure before you buy.

Fantastic starters! My first set lasted over 2000 hours worth no issues. Very lite and they spin fast and smooth!

My starter failed after 1400 hours on my Cessna T206H. Purchased this replacement and it just worked as it should. 3 year warranty. Would recomend.

Q&A

Q: When the specifications/features lists the starter as being PMA, what does this acronym mean?

Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) is an approval granted by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to a manufacturer of aircraft parts. Production approval will be granted when the FAA is satisfied that the system will not permit parts to leave the system until the parts have been verified to meet the requirements of the approved design, and the system otherwise meets the requirements of the FAA quality system regulations

Q: I have an worn out Sky-Tec 149-12LS, is there core re-reimbursement?

No, these are new, outright and there is no core exchange for these starters.

Q: What is the current draw of the 149-12LS?

125-220A @ 11V.

Q: is an STC required to install on a Mooney? Does it come included with the starter?

This is covered by STC SE00218NY. The STC covers the engine, not the airframe. The paperwork is not in the box but it can be downloaded from Sky-Tec website.
