So you want to buy a starter motor on eBay?

Fantastic choice, you've made an excellent choice by picking this competitive market where you can make a great saving. But how do you know that you are getting the right product? With things such as starter motors its important to make sure that the product you purchase will fit and function with your vehicle, so we've written this helpful guide for you.

Starter Motor Basics

Starter motors come in many sizes and configurations with different mounting styles, various voltages, along with variations in the number of pinion teeth and how they engage with the fly wheel. To ensure you get the correct starter motor, that will fit first time and work as it was designed to, we include a specification chart with each listing, so you can confirm you are ordering the correct part.
One of the simplest ways to check if the replacement starter is compatible is to send us the parts numbers on your old starter. In most instances we can run a simple cross reference and confirm your choice.
If at any stage you want help working through this chart, have a question or just want to confirm your choice, send us a message and we will work it out for you. (No extra charge promise)

How We Measure a Starter Motor

Please follow the diagram below when selecting your starter motor, please measure the mounting holes, count the pinion teeth, work out the flange and pinion diameter. A few minutes measuring now will ensure you get the right part first time.
The important points that The Parts Man use to distinguish our starter motors can be found in figure 1 and 2. They are:
  •  Pinion at rest
  • Flange Diameter
  • Mounting Holes
  • Pinion Diameter
  • Pinion Teeth
All of these need to be checked to ensure that your starter motor will fit and most importantly function as intended in your vehicle.
