Thinking of adding a starter to my 1912 Torpedo.
Will a starter transmission cover fit my 1912 motor and pan? I have heard it will and it won't, so chime in and set me straight.
You can easily check while you're adding a starter ring.You will have it all apart anyway.I think it will.
You have to pull the engine and change the flywheel to one with a starter ring gear, then you can add the starter type hogshead and starter.
will the starter hog head fit the block and pan of a 1912 motor?
A 1919-25 starter hogs head will fit on your 1912 pan. I did just that on my Town Car.
There's a cutout in the magneto ring for the starter. You might have to change the magneto ring, or maybe you can cut out the half-moon required.
The 1912 magneto coil ring clears a starter with no modification.
