Works beautifully, better value than OEM and lighter as well. Spruce delivered to the fuel island at corona airport, canâ€™t get more convenient than that!
Installed this starter on my Cessna 170B / Lycoming O-360-A4M. It easily fit with no baffle interference. This is not the type of starter that cranks super fast, but is faster and smoother than the stock Presolite type starter. Time will tell regarding longevity. Overall I like it.
Great product, a joy to start the plane now.
Amazing starter, makes the old starter look pathetic when it was working, hot starts are no longer a issue as this starter turns the engine over so fast it has no option other than to start. Fantastic shipping time from aircraft spruce, was shipped 2 hours after ordered, and delivered into South Africa in 6 days.
Always a great product.
This starter NEW was less than a refurbished starter + core charge + shipping. Made sense to me! Being installed by my mechanic now. This company is easy to work with and shipping is quick and trackable.
This thing is amazing. With my new starter and battery, I can almost taxi on electric power, not gas. :o)
With the old Prestolite starter one could always see the blades go by with the SkyTec, despite the fact that I still have a braided strap on the positive terminal, the blades are a blur. Add to that the fact that it is half the weight of the Prestolite and you have a starter that will leave you tickled pink.
125-220A @ 110V, 140 RPM Test.
Do not crank for more than 10 seconds, and allow 20 seconds of cool down time in between attempts. Repeat up to 6 times then allow starter to cool for 30 minutes.
No, the 24V version is Part # 08-07059.
No this is mounted metal to metal.
Yes, the starter that is being replaced with this unit should be returned for core credit.
