The walsall engine on ebay i'm going to be bidding on, is without starter motor as he broke it on removing the engine.

My engine and gearbox had a solenoid type starter and his engine had an inertia type starter. Is which starter you need relevant to your engine, gearbox or both?

makes no odds mate as it's only the starters that are different.

makes no odds mate as it's only the starters that are different, for the second time. pre-engaged is preferable over inertia unless you carry a hammer in the boot if it goes tlts up.

He`s Right Tim! Any starter will fit, it`s just the solenoid wiring that`s different, Just stick a pre engaged one on as you`ve already got the wiring for one.
