Hey

New starter turned up today from ebay. Wacked it on.. and holly smokes it can wind the motor fast. All most redlines it just from hitting the key. *thought* Hit the key when the lights go green and I may get a boost?
Pics are the old original and the new High torque version.

Feel free to add to the pedia.

Comments

These starters are a big improvement in efficiency alright.

Also is that the motor used in these reduction starters is sold as a spare part. The motor is held onto the drive housing with just 2 bolts and the electrical connection. It's a cheap and quick job to replace a tired or worn out motor where the reduction gearbox and remaining parts are still in good condition.

So often Bosch demonstrates common sense with both their marketing and engineering.

It definitely looks like one of mine. The Bosch units will always have a nicer drive end housing casting, due to more sophisticated casting processes and will always use a black painted motor housing. If its's Bosch it will also ALWAYS have the Bosch armature logo and/or BOSCH on it. The copy product from Asia tends to generally use a "grainier" casting and the motor housing is generally zinc or gold zinc plated.

It won't necessarily say BOSCH but it should have the logo and possibly a part number and production date codes. The logo is shown on the Bosch site.

Hi,all...
It looks exactly like mine,black casing and all...except mine is some chinese brand,no `Bosch` stamp at all.
Normally I avoid chinese-built anything...but I needed one cheap at the time and this (so far...) has done the job for the last 18 months or so.Was $119,I think??
Scared the crap outta me too the first time I turned the key,with it`s high-pitched whine :-}
Cheers
Dusty

I know what you mean, I recently changed the starter in the HZ for one of these units (got it from ebay for about the same money). I thought that i'd stripped a gear or something. But very nice indeed. No issues on cold mornings.

Do they use/require more power when you hit the key?

Just wondering if your battery was on the way out, if there would be enough juice to kick it over.

I HATE it when TV shows destroy the old classics........ The money they waste on destroying them, they could send the bloody things to me. I'd be more than happy to have them!

The current draw is similar to the earlier non reduction style. The difference being this later type uses a smaller higher revving motor working through a reduction gearbox to produce more torque overall at a similar rpm to the old style unit.
