The starter is working well, and spins the engine faster than the old Lamar starter did. I worry a bit because it comes with two shear pins in case of kickbacks. I can imagine trying to get at and replace a shear pin at some remote place.

Light weight and much faster than the original starter. So far, this starter is everything they claim.

The starter fit our Cessna 172 and it turns the engine over faster than the old starter

I ordered my starter to replace an identical unit that failed to function, stranding me at a distant airport until I found a mechanic willing to give me a hand prop. The old part had been in service for 8 years and 1635 tach hours. It is unclear to me why the part failed. I suspect that another pilot who flew my plane made repeated starting attempts and burnt it out. Be sure to put the sticker onto your panel that warns pilot to only crank for 20 seconds or something like that.

Candidly, I was somewhat skeptical of the added benefit/advantage this high-torque starter versus a standard (OEM if you will) starter for half the cost. However, I AM BLOWN AWAY! Starting rpms are double what they used to be, and hot starts, cold starts, warm starts, no prime starts...doesnt matter, it fires up my Lycoming O-540 within a single second. It has surpassed all my expectations and has provided a new feeling of comfort and confidence with restarting after landing at airports after-hours. With the old starter, the hot restart was always a big concern in my mind, especially at smaller airports or after-hours with no GPU available. Well that concern is gone thanks to this new starter. It spins the prop as if plugged into a GPU. HAPPY CUSTOMER! THANK YOU!

This starter worked great turning over an IO-720 engine. The older starter always had to be rocked to get it turning. Not this one. Good buy!

Q&A

Please note, Aircraft Spruce's personnel are not certified aircraft mechanics and can only provide general support and ideas, which should not be relied upon or implemented in lieu of consulting an A&P or other qualified technician. Aircraft Spruce assumes no responsibility or liability for any issue or problem which may arise from any repair, modification or other work done from this knowledge base. Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: What is the published replacement time for the Sky-tec 149-NL starter? I have 2700 hours of aircraft operation listed on one of our 5 aircraft but cannot find where this requirement originated from.

Yes, the TBO would be 2700 hours. This is recommended but not required.

Q: Does the 149-NL come with an FAA 8130-3?

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.

Q: Is there any routine lubrication required for these Sky-Tec high-torque Lycoming starters? If so what is the interval, what is the recommended lubricant and what is the procedure?

No periodic maintenance or lubrication is required.

Q: Would a LW-15572 starter be an acceptable core return for a Sky-Tec 149-NLEC (08-07059)?

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.

Q: For p/n:149-NL/EC is this new or oh/exchange?

This is new, outright.

Q: What is the post/terminal/lug size for landing the power cable?

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.

Q: Whats the difference between NL-149 and a NL/EC- 149?

The EC models are 24 volt only and are extended cranking super duty starters.

Q: Is there any available STC for 122/149nl starters?

They are FAA/PMA, all the PMA information is avialable on the Hartzell website.

Q: What does it mean to have a PMA starter?

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.

Q: Are the 122-nl supposed to crank at the same speed of a 149-nl the 122NL that we installed is not cranking as fast than the 149 nl that we have installed on many aircraft

They are rated the same with a 6.5:1 gear reduction, 120 - 140 RPMs @ 11volts
