  • What's this starter fit?

    Obviously not a Stude part... Any ideas?

    Looks like a common GM part. Maybe a 6.2 diesel truck engine.

      Matthew, if it has a tag or a delco # stamped in the
      housing, you can get a I D from auto parts stores.
      The early delcos had tags, later it was stamped in
      the housing. Check and if it has one post the #

        sure looks like a Delco as others have said. Almost looks like a 56J starter but I think those were also located on the driver's side?

          Well, it's not a 6.2 Diesel starter. Those ones mount by way of two bolts coming straight up from below, like small-block Chevys do. Not the best way to do it, IMHO.

            I was just curious as to what vehicles used that style starter... I know of several that can be bought cheap, along with some new generators too.

              Has it two or three attachment bolt holes? Really Looks like a two bolt bellhousing-mount starter for a 235 six-cylinder chevy, used from 1955 through 1962, but it might be some other late 50-60's GM application--even an implement. The Delco tag on the side tells the application, voltage and year model, if it is still attached. Rebuilders frequently removed them.

                I didn't look at it close enough to see how many bolt holes are there. This one and many others are in a big 'stash' at an old parts house here. Just trying to get an idea of what some of the stuff is, as many of the NOS/rebuilt starters are like this one...

                  Matt, if you can get a deal, just remember,
                  there are many delco starters you can use
                  the field housings, communtator end plate,
                  and even armature and drive in others. Some
                  you can just change the nose. I have a old
                  rebuilders catalogue, if you can get a number.
