I have just bought a crank and flywheel (wedgemated) and it seems it may have a 6volt 200mm flywheel which initially I was a bit pissed off about but I am sure I remember someone saying there is a lightweight high torque starter that has a removal cog?

Am I dreaming? Or can someone back up my dodgy memory? Smiley

I know that's an option if all else fails.

I recall hearing here in NZ that people use a Subaru starter with a 6v flywheel.   I think there is a minor modification needed to the starter though.  

Probably too vague to be of help but may  trigger someone else's memory.

Yep, wondered if they had the 6 volt cog but 12 volt capacity?

Also, can you not just fit the 12 volt solenoid to a 6 volt starter?

6 volt cogs are/were available from CB for the chinese IMI (and tilton?) starters.
Pretty sure any auto electrician can get them, since they are for the Nippon Denso spline.

Yes, Subaru use a cog that will mesh with the 6 volt ring gear
but an adapter needs to be made to mate the flange up the the VW trans.
crankykits.com.au make such a kit

If you get stuck I can supply one to suit as I use them for the 356 engines I do aswell as the VWs. The pinion gear is changeable in seconds and is unsupported like a semi-auto version so no messing about with bushes etc.....very light and compact (internal solenoid)...been using them for years without any problems but they are about 300.
I guess you bought that Okrasa crank thats been knocking about then?  Wink

Hi Ian,
Hope you are well. Thanks for the reply  Smiley
 No Okrasa, it's a 78.4 Demello crank and flywheel. Unknown at time of purchase it has a 6volt flywheel. I thought it was a major drama at first but it seems there are various ways round it now from a starter point of view.
