Nice, light starter, but I can not understand why a core is not accepted from a 149-12LS just to change installation to a 149-12XLT. It is like adding 200 bucks to the pricetag without a corecharge.

Love the starter. The core charge seems crazy on a new starter?

Great starter, but make sure you figure out a solution for the starter cable because it will likely be too short! Bogert sells both a 3 and 6 extension lead, but we opted to buy bulk cable and fabricate it ourselves.

Easy install and works great. Gave me about 9.5LBS useful load back.

This is a great starter. I use on my RV6A 0-360. Its quiet and powerful. I gained 9.5 lbs. by removing my Prestolite starter. The install was easy, exactly the same wiring.

Good: this order was promptly and correctly shipped. The new starter worked perfect. Bad: But this is my second starter with only 200 hours. My original starter broke where the casting supports the front of the engagement gear (a SKY-TEC problem). I had to order twice as UPS messed up the shipping of my first starter replacement order.

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 difference between 10/12 pitch and 12/14 pitch, and also the difference between 122 and 149 tooth ring gears? Maybe a better question is why would a person choose one (pitch or number of teeth on the ring gear) over the other.

A 122 tooth ring gear has 10/12 pitch, and a 149 tooth ring gear has 12/14 pitch. These engines can use both ring gears, so you must identify what is installed on your engine to select the correct starter.

Q: What is the weight of the 149-12XLT starter?

Its just under 7 lbs.

Q: What is the warranty on these starters? And whatever it may be, is it from time of purchase or time of installation if I want to have one on the shelf for customers?

24 months/1000 hrs. Starts at time of install.
