Works Great. Lighter than old one.
arrived sooner than I expected, very happy about that. Well packed and protected.
I replaced my Kelly starter with this new Sky-Tec 149-NL starter (PA28R-180) and what an improvement in cranking speed. Bravo, and I saved ~ 6 pounds to boot. Thing is that the +B lead will need to be extended ~ 1.5 in. in order to connect to the new starter. In my case, I had enough slack in the starter wiring so this was not a problem.
Just put it on O320 h2ad. So far so good. Just read the warning that is attached to starter so you dont burn it up. It has a sticker that you attach inside the plane. Warn all other pilots to observe this. Also its light weight is awesome. Mechanic did have to cut shroud on right side (from pilot seat) but it Left a gap on left side of shroud due to smaller size than the original. He said we need to attach flexible material to seal it. Also had to pull electric wire that goes to starter forward to reach bolt. we had enough slack but if yours is already tight that may be an issue but one easily fixed. F.y.i. I have only started it 4 times so far. God bless.
Plug and play...works great. Seems to spin a lot faster using same low CCA battery. Pleased so far.
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.
