Well packaged, easy to install, and runs great.
I received it in 2 days. Went on easy and worked great. Only had it on my plane for little over week. But so far so good.
fast delivery, works perfectly
Has breathed new life into our 0-320-E2D on our C-172M! Old starter was tired so this upgrade was needed. Very pleased!
I put this starter on my Piper Pacer knowing full well that Id have to modify the forward oil cooler bracket, Installation was straight forward, and the bracket was easy to modify. The thing cranks the engine over like crazy, weighs 8 LBS less than the original Delco-Remy, and allows me to blank off the hole in the nose bowl for the original starter.....whats not to like about this? My 2 cents....Just buy one and install it..........
I installed this starter on my Lycoming IO-360 engine at the recommendation of my mechanic and I have to admit it is amazing. I was getting so tired of having a hard time starting especially when the eng. is hot. This starter rotates engine so fast and effortlessly making starting so much easier. I highly recommend it.
In commercial use they cannot and will not hold up to more than 350-400 hours of in use time. The drive body separates from the motor through chaffing in the assy hardware. Poor build design though good for starts. Many SDR already submitted.
Nice light weight starter but did not fit a SuperCub with stock forward oil cooler. Pos stud contacted the oil cooler bracket. Pos cable would have to be rerouted to make up for the extra distance to connect. Poor planning for a direct replacement part.
Easy to swap out after getting the air box out of the way on a Mooney.
Lighter, more powerful, easier to install. Fantastic product.
Yes, the TBO would be 2700 hours. This is recommended but not required.
This does not come with an 8130. To get an 8130, the customer would have to backorder this part and specify that they need an 8130. The vendor will add this to the part for an additional charge. They will only issue 8130's before the the part leaves their facility. Once the part has left their facility they are no longer able to get an 8130 on that unit.
No periodic maintenance or lubrication is required.
No. The Sky-Tec starter 149-NLEC (part # 08-07059) is a new, outright starter and there is no core charge / core exchange associated with it's purchase.
This is new, outright.
Per the SkyTec Supplementary Instructions, the power terminal is metric M8 x 1.25 threads. The starter will come with the nut and lock washer.
The 149NL is a right hand rotation and the 149NLR is left.
The EC models are 24 volt only and are extended cranking super duty starters.
They are FAA/PMA, all the PMA information is avialable on the Hartzell website.
PMA refers to the FAA-PMA approval that these starters have. This approval allows for installation into certificated aircraft. Please contact your parts manual for clarification on which starter can be installed legally in your specific aircraft.
