Dodge WC starter motor

Recommended Posts

Does any body know of a starter motor that will fit a WC dodge engine fitted with a electric solenoid for push button or key start. I want to do away with foot pedal start.

 

Thanks Howard

My Dodge was converted to a key start so there is that type of starter that fits, but don't know from what?, try John at Midwest military in the US, sure he will know

Is there any reason you cant leave the starter motor and just fit a remote solenoid ?

Yes there is a reason, the foot operated starter switch linkeage also engages the starter pinion gear to mesh with the flywheel too

Any contemporary or slightly later Chrysler 6 volt unit should fit.

 

There might be an owner out there with a truck converted to solenoid start, that would do you a straight swap to get the original type.
