I do not want to start a discussion on 6 volt over 12 volt. My question is:
; "Is there a supplier that sells a 12 volt starter?"
Birdhaven? (866) 302-3673
If they don't have it maybe they can direct you.
Maybe someone else can chime in for different vendor qualities. I bought a rebuilt 6 volt from Ron Patterson so I have no idea about the 12 volt ones
Becker antique auto electric in Norwalk Ohio has them for $ 165.00
The six volt starter has two sets of parallel windings and when they are converted to 12 volts they are connected in series.
Dennis, I just got one from Becker and although I haven't used it yet, I think it was way cheaper than Mac's, looks to be excellent quality and their service was great. I think I waited a couple of weeks, but hey, the T won't even wake up for another few months!!!!!!!
Dena Dennis....I converted all 4 of my T to 12v years ago. Where what I did. Changed to 12v "da" added a bendix spring to the starter post to act as a dropping resistor, and changed to 12v light bulbs. Years later, all is well. Hope this helps not that this is what you need to do but in my case......Jerry.
