Installed in a PA-32 (Cherokee 6). Fit and functioned perfectly.

I believe this is a better quality starter than the one I had in my Beechcraft A35. The only issue I ran into is that the mounting holes had to be reamed because my firewall mounting is narrower than the smallest spacing on the Solenoid. I needed to gain about 1/3 inch in order to mount it. Also even though it is intuitive the instruction does not mention that the ground wire should mount to a mounting screw.

Shipping speed and pricing were pleasing.
NOTE: the installation instructions, while accurate, were a bit ambiguous and could use being updated. I sent the manufacturer a specific suggestion for editing the instructions to make them more clear. E.g., parts of the instructions probably havent been changed in a looooong time. Theyre perfectly adequate for A&Ps with a lot of experience but an A&P without prior experience (i.e., fresh eyes) in these units might not be able to follow the instructions.

Flawless operation 700+ hrs
FYI. A weak or defective battery can cause solenoid contacts to stick, be sure to confirm battery health when replacing a âdefectiveâ solenoid.

Direct replacement for Cessna starter solenoid. The original had on three connections, the ground connection was simply the case. This version did not pose any installation problems, the ground wire was included and simply connected to one of the mounting bolts.

worked great. Had a question on how to install. There are two different ways to connect one of the wires that comes with it. Called the Lamar company for technical information and they helped out. Great product.

This product fit in the mount and to this point accomplishes the intended task at a fraction of the cost of the OEM part.

Installed easily. Fit the original footprint and post layout. Starter spins better now than I can ever remember. First rate product.

cheaper and better quality than the OEM recommended part. I recommend this for anyone looking for a starter solenoid.

The company should have not but the ground wire on the battery side of the terminal .It really made it confusing .I had to call the company up and they expand it to me. Works great now it to me .

Arrived quickly. Worked great after a minor trimming of the base for the mounting bolts.

Purchased this to replace a 55 year old part that was still working, just showing signs of age. Worked great for 13 months (one month outside of warranty), then the solenoid stuck on and caused battery failure.

The one I bought failed after 10 starts.

Replaced the original Cessna Relay after 6800 hours, and this one lasted 65 hours or a little more than a year.

This part did not fit the spacing of the bolts that mount it to the firewall of my C-205A even though this part is authorized for this aircraft. If your bolt spacing is 2 inches, it wont fit.

Failed in 10 starts, contact weld shut, prop started turning when master turned on
