Starter Motor and Solenoid Heavy Duty for Universal Diesels

Part #: K2156


Aftermarket 12V starter and solenoid replacement for Universal Diesel engines. The OEM supplied starter assembly is so ridiculously expensive we wanted a more realistic yet high quality solution for our customers. This is a direct replacement for the original equipment, however it is a heavy duty gear reduction drive version that supplies 1.61HP compared to the direct drive that supplied 1.07HP.
• Fast engine starts – High quality magnets or field coils deliver more torque for fast and efficient engine starts.
• Seals out residue – Sealed housings and bearings keep the internal workings cleaner and drier.
• Premium materials – Copper and silver contacts instead of cheaper aluminum or steel ones.
• Long-term reliability – Quality brushes and bushings for a long service life and better efficiency.
• Brand new starter – Not secondhand or refurbished.
