what year was the first starter motor, I have a 1913 c cab, engine is correct year but the hogs head has provision for a starter motor can I put a flywheel and starter on it, mag is still there but not sure about starter ring gear> engine has no generator provision,is it possible to put a starter on it????????
1919 was the beginning of electric starters on a Ford. If yours already has a starter transmission cover, there is a good chance it has a starter ring gear - and yes, you can install a starter and then charge the battery once in a while or install a belt driven generator/alternator.
I need to remove the covers they have over the starter holes and see if the ring gears there, THANKS STEVE Let you know soon.
Magneto ring will need to be changed as well for a starter notch.
Derrick, your 1913 C Cab is rare! Please post a photo.
James I will post some pics soon.
