Starter Motor Help Required!!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

New owner and complete a mature here  any help and recommendations welcome. I’ve got a 2l Pinto engine which I have records saying it was built in 1975 for a Cortina. The starter motor is very lazy. I bought a new bosh style one off eBay but it is just spinning so believe it is a bad fit. The one that’s come off the car is a Lucas 25345a. Could someone please recommend a new, more efficient replacement?

Hi, I have a starter motor in stock, believe its for a Pinto. It had a solenoid contact problem which I have fixed.

Its a Bosch unit  752  2 Made in Germany   0  001 208 520  ( Bosch product number?)   12V   86 GB  11000  BA are all the details on the body.

Which Cranborne are you ?  Dorset ?   If so welcome to collect & try or bring old unit & compare.

      I have just about finished my Robin Hood but there seems to be a problem with the idle. After a couple of minutes it starts going lumpy and cuts out. It keeps cutting out if I don't hold the throttle open slightly.
      It is a 2.0l Pinto with a Weber 30/34 DFTH. I noticed there is a pipe coming from the carb that looks like a breather (black and red). The problem stopped when I sealed the end of this pipe. This may be a stupid question but, does anyone know what it is for? Is it originally from the air cleaner?

      Hi guys been a while, i've put a new rad in the Robin Hod which has no header built in. The only thing left is the original air bleed off point which i will now use as the filler . Any idea on a remote header tank for it? Not looking to go pressurised just staying standard.

      Hi All,
      I'm in the process of installing Megajolt to my Pinto engine which is running on cbr900 bike carbs.
      I would like to have a second temperature sensor so that the Megajolt can adjust the timing relative to the temperature of the engine. I am aware that I cannot use the temperature sensor in the head for the MJ as well as the temp gauge so I need a second one.
      I have a temp sensor in the top pipe already for my temp controlled fan. Does anyone have any other ideas where I could put another one?
      Having read this forum (http://www.locostbuilders.co.uk/forum/3/viewthread.php?tid=63708) it appears I could put one in the coolant drain bore (3/8 NPT thread). Has anyone else done this?
      Thanks all!
