    Starter Needed-gctid811996

    I need a starter For my 1981 2555 that has a 5.7 volvo setup. Can anyone help me with a part source and a part number? Tried to get one at Fisheries but all they had was the 30 pound large original type, not the ring reduction starter. Straight bolt pattern.

    Thank you.

      Unless its corroded to death why not just get it rebuilt st a starter shop? Much cheaper . Starters are one of those things that really never wear out.

        I'm with chief, DB will have the PMGR starter for probably 50 bucks. That's where I purchased mine, much smaller in size and weight but better performance.

          A starter for $50:S wow. It costs me 50 + to get one rebuilt. If you can hook up a deal like that dive on it!

            The 30 lb large original style is a direct drive starter motor. These are AMP hungry, low out-put and are out-dated.

            What you want is one of today's HTGR/PMGR starter motors with the straight bolt pattern for the 153 tooth flywheel ring gear! (not the staggered bolt pattern for the 168 tooth ring gear!)

            Your new HTGR/PMGR motor will look similar to this one!

            The armature in these will spin approx 3 Xs faster than the old style.

            With the GR (gear reduction), these will crank the engine over faster........, all while using fewer AMPS!

            The trick is finding a source for these whereby all steel reduction gears are being used in lieu of the nylon reduction gears.

            So..... be sure to ask when making your purchase! [/color]

            Good company, but they cannot provide a HTGR/PMGR starter motor with anything but the nylon gears! I have asked this company twice! [/color]

            I would never suggest rebuilding an old school, non-gear reduction starter motor!

            And I must respectfully disagree in that any starter motor can and will eventually wear out!

            That said....... a well rebuilt starter motor is generally OK! [/color]

              Generally agree with Rick on the new type starter ... However, I have personally installed dozens, of new style starters, and more then a few alternators from DB in autos and boats, never had one go from just use.

              One or 2 went from being splashed with saltwater, or immersed.

              I paint them as well as alternators, also I paint oil filters.

                All steel reduction gears would definitely be the way to go, I personally couldn't find one without having to pay through the a$$ for it. I figured I'd give the nylon gear type a try as its not difficult to swap out a starter on my 2556. Haven't had it that long but so far I've Been pleased with it B)

                    Be sure to use the new bolts that should be supplied with the new HTGR/PMGR motor!

                      The order shows new bolts included that I will definitely use.

                      Thanks Rick!
