I am in the final stages of finishing the rebuild of eight Model T Ford Starting motors and one is still available for sale.
Completely rebuilt including; total disassembly, gauging of brushcap, case and mounting bracket for any damage or misalignment, field winding rebuilt using new pinned and silver soldered terminal bolt to buss bar connection, New terminal bolt nuts made to Ford specifications, brushplate removed and completely rebuilt with FunProjects fiberglass insulators and riveted into the brushcap (an electrical connection) with copper rivets as originally manufactured, armature shaft straightened, armature electrically tested, commutator refinished and new brushes contoured to commutator, sealed ball bearing and spacer in brush cap (far superior to bushings with no facility for lubrication), new mounting bracket main bushing with integral armature shaft oil seal installed and re-bushed mounting bracket Bendix stop nut running area.
Each unit has been electrically and dynamically tested for speed, torque and current draw to original Ford specification.
The unsold unit will be available the first week of June. Price is $375 plus UPS shipping including a special box you can reuse to return your (required) starter core. If interested contact Ron Patterson Telephone 859-881-1677 or Email modeltcoils(at)windstream(dot)net.
Ron, I ran into some T parts the other day. What should a man pay for a starter core, and what should I look for, without any test equipment.
Ron what's the price if you don't have a core
$25 is a fair price... IF the end of the starter shaft Woodruff keyway and Bendix drive head bolt hole is not badly damaged.
You have to take your chances on the armature winding being usable.
Sorry, the rebuilt starter was sold nine minutes after I posted it's availability.
If you want to get on my rebuilt starter list send me an email and plan on a 6 month wait.
Thanks MTFCA Classifieds.
