Starter Motor Failed - Replaced with Iskra 12V 20K...

David Murray

Guy's I need your expert advice.

I've had an intermittent problem starting my 180H. The Lame and the Avionics guys say it’s my starter motor and the Lame just installed a lightweight Starter, Iskra 12V 20Kw unit (they are STC’d). Since installing it I've had a message from a well-respected engineering company in Timaru New Zealand tell me I shouldn't have fitted it as those starters engage too fiercely and run the risk of stripping the starter adapter. Do any of you use these light weight starters on 180’s or 185? Has anyone experienced any problems??? Should I exchange it for the heavier unit??? Your advice is much appreciated! Dave
