I’ve had these starters in service for 10 or more years. They work great. They used to be switchable between 12/24 volt. Not anymore. Make sure to order the correct one.

SKY-TEC 24V STARTER 149NL/EC

January 27, 2024

Well after 6 months of getting a rebuilt starter that didnt work and getting warrantee for it I placed and order for the Sky-Tec starter 12v 122-NL. The starter works great so far with mutable starts and shut downs. So I had to add a length of starter wire from my stock it was 5.5 inches from eye to eye and covered the bolt and acorn nut with heat shrink. I had to move the oil cooler out of the way to get a nut on the back bolt, not a big thing just an extra hour to the job. There is lots of clearance between the starter and oil cooler on My 1972 PA- 28 140 . I dry ran the starter 8 times to make sure it worked. I did see the bendix teeth had test mark which I was happy to see that it was tested under load. Its nice to know there is a 2 year warrantee on this starter and not 6 months on a rebuild. The front were the bendix in housed is polished and looks great. The starter is good quality manufacturing. My recommendation is to spend the extra money and dont get a rebuilt starter that takes 2.5 months to get and has a bad bendix right out of the box. Im glad this starter problem happened at home because it would have cost me $1000.00 in out of town costs.

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
