  • Starter ID

    I have two starters that I need to ID. I think both are V-8 but don't know the exact applications--
    One tag has MDU- 7026 llS (ok, found this one 12V V-8 automatic Avanti 4 field)
    the other has 1107116 3F5

    Anyone know?
    Thanks!!

    MDU-7026 - standard 63-64 V-8 automatic
    1107116 - 52-55 V-8 automatic (6V)

    tag numbers on pg. 4

    note that the MDU starter may have a stickshift nose on it, auto and stick noses interchange fairly easily.

    MDU is *not* a 4-pole starter - that would be MDY. If it hasn't been messed with, there's two big poles and one small pole inside, although there's screws for four pole shoes on the case. (same case, armature, end plates, etc. between the two. Only difference appears to be the pole shoes and associated windings.) I've wondered if one could take two MDU starters and turn them into a MDY, but haven't gone beyond salvaging a pair of crappy starters from the trash can at JDP's and throwing the parts into a box.

      thanks N8N !
      ?? there are four brushes inside the 7026 ----
      So, I would assume the 7026 would work on any 12volt automatic V8?

      What does the conv stand for on the notes?

        Yep, it was used 63-64 (actually I think I mistyped, I think it's actually 62-64, and I'm too lazy to check myself at the moment) but all V-8 12V starters are interchangeable, the only difference being manual or automatic transmission. Like I said, make sure nobody changed the "nose" on it though to use it on a stickshift. I can't remember at the moment which one is longer and which one is shorter.

        edit: "conv" stands for "conventional" e.g. 3-speed stick w/o OD. I was trying to use the same terminology as used in the parts books to make things more consistent for someone trying to match something up with parts books. I realize that that's fairly obsolete terminology as it's probably been 30 years since anyone's sold a "conventional" transmission

          I was trying to figure out why a convertible would need a different starter!!
