No laughs, we have all had moment(ssssssss) like these
Does anyone happen to have a part number for the gear reduction nippon denso starter that fits the IDI? I was only able to find the part number for a reman mistubishi style unit (280-4253). I'm really hoping to find a quality gear reduction unit.
I also took apart the DB starter and was appalled at how damaged the internals were. I doubt its even serviceable.
Go with the Power Master 9050.
There are several issues her. Last one, if they sold you a starter for the wrong application , its on them. Two, the glow plug solenoid looks identical to a standard Ford starter solenoid. Starter relay has a large copper disk pulling against 3/8 bolt heads in relay. the glow plug has a contact the size of a #2 pencil eraser. When the glow plug relays dies use starter solenoid/ relay ,same thing). About 1989 I had to replace the glow plug contactor in my 86 trk. It still runs and when it wears out I will replace it .. I am the original owner of my truck, spec it and waited two and a half months for it to be built and delivered. had less than ten miles on it when it went to Ziebart.
I just ordered one. Should be able to install it this weekend!
I'll keep everyone posted.
I failed to keep everyone posted!
The powermaster starter seemed to crank just as fast as the denso unit I returned. It was also covered in a rubberized coating, which smelled awful. But I'll appreciate the protection it offers.
