It occurs to me that a small diesel
mtr built in japan
in 1978-79 using a hitachi generic starter motor
means that same motor
must have been used in a lot of other japan
manufactured engines. Does anyone have any information that might help me in looking for a 2nd hand starter motor, probably from a wreckers yard? It was suggested to me previously on here that the model waas a hitachi S114-206...so I'd like to know if this was used on any of the mass produced cars of that time - toyota, mitsubishi, mazda, nissan
, etc as these would be the cheapest source.
I'll report back shortly on what I've used as a replacement, which may be of interest to anyone else with a 2qm.
