  • Electrical: Delco starter 1107651

    I located a Delco-Remy 1107651 starter. From what I read here, it fits the 1956-1960 V8 automatic transmission application:

    The 1107651 measures about 9 inches long from the bellhousing side of the flange to the far end. The snout is about 2-3/4 inches long measured from that same side of the flange. It has a 9-tooth gear,

    Does anyone know of a company that sells rebuilding parts for the Delco-Remy starters of this vintage?

    If you find a place, check them out before sending them your starter.

    In my experience, starter/generator rebuilding places do really slap dash work.

      I have a local auto electrical shop that's been around since at least the 1980s that has done good work for me in the past on mainstream GM starters and alternators. This starter might be too old for them. That's why I was asking about availability of parts.

      It's nice to pay less for a local shop-rebuilt unit than one that was rebuilt in China. But you're right, some shops don't deliver quality.

        Vintage Voltage in Illinois has been rebuilding my starters and generators since 2013. Excellent work.

          I would find it hard to believe that a Delco Starter for a Studebaker would not share things not peculiar to Studebaker's, like the Field Windings, Bearings, Bushings, Brushes, Brush Springs, Armature with GM -B, O, P + Cad. Cars of that Era.

          So any good, longer in Business Auto Electric Shop SHOULD be able to fix you up, I know ours here in my County can.

            The only thing that is unique to that Delco number is the Bendix. As Rich said, Delco made families of starters and generators that shared major components. Any good automotive electrical shop (of which only a few are left) will have a copy of the foot-thick Delco book that lists the component parts of each Delco number.
