    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.

    parts number SR0409x

    $75 each delivered

    Can’t wait to check out the HAAS.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    That’s super cool. What CAD software are you using? I’ve been playing with Fusion 360 lately.

    You already have that machine set up and spitting out parts?

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I put one of these in my subi 2.5 powered bug a year ago and it has been fantastic. Thanks Andy!
