Hey fellas, new to these neck of the woods. I recently inherited a 62 xl ute which has been a paddock basher its whole life. I brought it down from Armidale to Sydney and slowly putting some love back into her.
The current issue, it starter motor related. Its time to replace it and asked my mechanic to order me a replacement unit. He supplied me with a Bosch '2 bolt' model but when I took it home to compare/replace it, I was rudely surprised to find the existing one looks totally different (being '3 bolt')
I have done some basic digging around and the closest thing I can find to something that resembles the original unit is a part for a mustang...
Have you guys come across one of these on your cars if so could you confirm where I can replace it with a mustang part or is there a way of modifying another to fit?
attached are photos of the original as well as the Bosch unit that was order.
Cheers guys, as you can imagine the car cant be driven or even moved at this point so I'd like to find the part pretty quickly.
