  • 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

    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

    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?...

    Remote starter

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

Leaving the feed store I step on starter and nothing. Waited a moment and tried again, nothing. Open hood and starter was smoking. Texted mitch as it was not 3am and he...

    Starter painting
    by Chuck Sea/Tac
    was the starter assembled before painting? For example if the windings were in, then the screws on the outside of the case, that hold them, would be painted as well.

    Starter interchange
    by Chuck Sea/Tac
    I evidently have an early starter that has the thin walled bushing on the long shaft. Can that armature be used with the later ends? It appears the id and length are the same, so why not?
