This is the best replacement for the old Bendix or the Sky - Tec permanent magnet starter.

It came. It fits. It works. I just wish I had known the new star washers ARE included. Ive got a few baggies of washers n bolts now that I dont really need.... ordered some to be sure we were covered. Add the included info to the product description for the next guy, please.

Works beautifully, better value than OEM and lighter as well. Spruce delivered to the fuel island at corona airport, can’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.

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.
