Where do I get a 10 tooth Bendix starter gear in the Uk?

PostPost by: jmp » Fri Jun 22, 2012 11:34 am

Just pulled the high torque starter off an s3 elan and found the 9 tooth bendix worn at the end. I've red an earlier thread about 10 teeth bendix gears and thought I would go with this. Where do you buy these from in the Uk please? Secondly is it worth insert a length of studding instead of the top bolt. Any pro's and cons. Just seems that it would be easier to replace and line up if the top connection sat on a stud.
Thanks in advance,
John

Thanks Jason, but it's the high torque one as listed here under RAC500L:

They seem to be imported from Denmark

Hmm, good idea on the stud. I'd like to hear about pro's and con's, too.
I can't think of any downside to it, unless the motor mount might be in the way.
