Post by Prlwng »

Can pickup an 84 1200 aspy cheap. Needs starter. Got a spare 1100 starter on shelf. Will it work?

As far as I'm aware, the '84 starter is a one year only part. I know the later 1200 starters don't fit neither do the 1100 or 1000 units. Best route is to take it to somewhere that does rebuild/rewinds, although these are getting scarce these days.
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
