need one to replace my broken one.
This is a weakness in design and materials from what I understand. Ford starters are not that hard to find. I'm sure you will get some input on this.
Can the end of a standard model T starter be machined to fit assuming you have the tools to complete it? More than likely if you don't have the tools the cost would be more than buy a rebuilt starter from Ron or others that may rebuild them.
John....Have you tried to contact Daryl Becker
???? His brother may have assembled your starter with known defective castings... calling Daryl would be the right step to take as he may have the casting you need.
John, I have a12 volt Becker starter for sale at $100. Call if interested. Tim. 216-447-0437
You also get it welded and have the welder beef up the area where it failed.
