ive been making these for a while now, well had a shop cnc make em for me. Now I got the haas in my possession. Fucking rocks!
So I got 2 versions, 1 for the subi swap gang, 1 for the air cooled gang. Bolts on. No mods needed. No goofy pin needed for air cooleds, uses the stock “D” bolt.
Quadruple your starting power, or quadruple your starter reliability by using a starter that’s new. Not a reman Mexico unit. No more IMI high torque(that’s only double stock) not more autosuck staters!
Uses a manual transmission starter from a 2000 vw diesel.

Can’t wait to check out the HAAS.

It’s awesome Ben!! I got a lot of other ideas and projects in mind.JeremyParticipantApril 28, 2020 at 11:30 pmPost count: 132
That’s super cool. What CAD software are you using? I’ve been playing with Fusion 360 lately.FranzModeratorApril 29, 2020 at 7:09 amPost count: 4874
You already have that machine set up and spitting out parts?ColeBModeratorApril 29, 2020 at 8:06 amPost count: 2612
I’ve seen a few Porsche’s with “hi torque” starters and they have started to completely chew up their flywheels. So much so that we pull them off and put a more stock type on. Have you had any issues like that with these diesel starters?AndymParticipantApril 29, 2020 at 8:17 amPost count: 979
I haven’t had that issue. My first one has been on the original car now for 3 years. Setting the depth of the starter and making sure it center of the hole was a challenge. we’re good! Im actually working with a guy in town on doing these for Porsche and the random gear boxes.
Yeh franz. Order on Wednesday, shows up Friday. Tech showed up Monday. So about 5 days total.JWDIIParticipantApril 30, 2020 at 3:12 amPost count: 446
Andy , you are a real go getter. I am glad to see the Subi Swap Shop coming along at a good pace and wish you much success.MikeKParticipantApril 30, 2020 at 10:56 amPost count: 286

I don’t think those early cars had a hardened ring gear. I’ve seen some pretty chewed up ring gears on VW’s with stock starters. It would probably be a good idea to run a hardened ring gear if you’re going to have a hi torque starter. IMO. If you have a hot rod motor that needs one of these starters, you probably are going to run a lightened flywheel, so that would be a good opportunity to have a hard ring gear installed.Critter1ParticipantMay 2, 2020 at 10:34 amPost count: 231
I’ve been using a diesel starter on my Notchback since I built it. It’s one of the best upgrades you can do. I’ll do it do every air-cooled VW I own. They’re also self supporting so no starter bushing to wear out.NewboldParticipantMay 10, 2020 at 7:44 amPost count: 150
I put one of these in my subi 2.5 powered bug a year ago and it has been fantastic. Thanks Andy!
