I've got a 55 Dodge 230 in my 38 Dodge PU and the starter packed it in, I've heard that I need a 12 volt starter to match the ring gear and a 6 volt starter won't match up, the only thing wrong with it is the Bendix is worn out. So I'm looking for info on interchanges, I believe this is why the thieves never got it any farther down the road.

Let me see if I can find my starter books and get a part number for you.

Took the broken starter to an old auto electric shop in Bend Oregon and got it identified as a Prestolite 160-353 starter for a 57-58 Chrysler and they just happen to have a NOS Bendix for it. Sometimes life is groovy.

Good deal! Those old shops are fading fast. Several years ago on a trip to Texas we found a shop in Kingman that rebuilt the OD solenoid for my son's Studebaker. A couple of years ago I drove by and it was closed. frown
