Jabiru Starter Motor

Postby diablo » Wed Feb 11, 2015 4:13 pm

The starter motor used on a Jabiru is automotive in origin but the mounting is definitely Jabiru's own.

The motor and body on earlier starters was Bosch I believe but for most of the last decade they were Nippon Denso. Type "2-1065-ND-2 Corolla" into Google and see what comes up - you will find it's the starter from a 88-92 Toyota Corolla.

I know of at least one person who has mated the motor and drive from the Corolla starter to the Jabiru mounting bracket. Price should be less than £100.

If you get problems with your starter I would always recommend as the first port of call an automotive starter and alternator repair shop. They have racks full of interchangeable spares and can usually rebuild anything. A good starter motor repair workshop is :

I think the clutch over run unit fitted to the starter is a Honda part. Honda Code 2108314
put this into google. the code also ties up with another supplier

Honda 31207-ZE3-003 CLUTCH, OVERRUNNING
Jabiru 450 UL
Engine serial 1041
1 CHT sensor on No 4 under plug
No Exhaust temp sensors
No glass panel
No xponder
Microair radio
No bells and whistles
Its been like this for 13 years, what I cannot see I cannot worry about in flight.....

I've just had an early (Bosch type) starter refurbished by Sahibs.
They called me when they had received and checked the motor, told me that it had been overloaded (probably by attempting to start with low battery / poor connections) and that they had parts (I assume a replacement rotor) to refurbish.
The motor was returned to me clean and with a fresh coat of paint on the steel body.
All done in a couple of days for just over £200 including post.
New item listed at £540! http://www.sky-craft.co.uk/acatalog/Skycraft_Jabiru_Engine_Starter_Motor_Spare_Parts_J2200_J3300.html
