  • Case 1845c starter

    Finally fixed my Case 1845c starter problem (days of turmoil) by going to my starter/ electrical guru. 3 dollar part and she spins like new. Pic shows solenoid plunger and contacts. All I needed was one terminal contact (brass piece left or right of plunger) and 5 minutes to replace. If your starter clicks once, on engagement, this could be the problem or multiple clicks could be your switch. Trying to save someone some grief and tons of money, Pat

    Model A's and of course the famous AA's

    On the old GM starter solenoids it was possible to flip the large copper washer and turn the studs half way around to give new contact surface.

    I did several back in the 60's and 70's.

      I wish you lived closer Tom, we could have fixed my problem sooner and then went fishing !! I need to take you to my "guru" someday, it's been a family business down here for generations. The old guys are gone, but the son of one continues the operation with a lot of wisdom from his elders. Their shop is like an old hardware store and he knows where every little part is. Great days to you, Pat

    Starter issues
    by JohnB15632
    My starter used to work. No it doesn't.
    Yesterday I put on a new positive power cable. Now have power to the starter post. Put on new starter switch. Depressed the starter switch and got nothing.
    I took the starter off. I have 12 vdc + at the end of the jumper wires. I connected the negative to the case of the starter. When I touched the positive red lead to the post, I got large sparks....

    Has anyone replaced the ford model A starter push rod with button - the peddle is stuck. So why would I replace the rod, when I could replace the rod with a switch? Has anyone tried this?...

    I may have missed it but I searched the archives and didn’t find the answer to my question. My car is a1929 still 6 volt with no plans to switch to 12 volt.

    My starter is sticking and doesn’t seem to be disengaging from the flywheel. I’ve rocked the car back and forth and got it to pop loose a few times. I’m thinking it’s time to replace the starter drive. Also, when I swapped...

    Starter that doesn’t stop
    by Joe D
    New to this forum and internet challenged. I have a 1930 model A 5window coupe. Starter does not shut off even when I shut off the car. If I disconnect the battery and reconnect the starter is still stuck on. Appears to be all original type stuff, 6 volt etc. Does anyone have an idea what the problem may be?

    Starter Motor and Bendix
    by DUProf
    I have a heavily-used largely ‘29. Still a 6 volt system. One of the changes that occurred over years of use was change to a push-button start on the dash. Attaches through a solenoid on the firewall. Recently the starter motor stuck ‘on’ during a brief 2 block drive; only discovered as I turned off the engine. Fiddling with the switch caused the starter motor to stop running. On attempted restart...

    Starter Failure?
    by Soapy
    A week or so ago, I was checking for compression on my engine which hadn't been run for many years. I was concerned that the valves which were open while sitting might have stuck. I had already squirted a load of penetrant in all cylinders and the plugs were out. Sure enough, two valves were stuck open. I had been using the starter to turn it over, and it spun it up really well. After freeing up the...

    Remote starter
    by Captndan
    Where can you buy or make a remote starter for 6v? All the ones I find are too small wire without a solenoid.
