Rotax Starter Motor NOW SOLD!! Thanks AFORS! United Kingdom
Starter motor £250 ono
I bought this starter motor with a Rotax 503 engine for my Spectrum. The engine didn't work properly so I tried using it with a Rotax 462 engine. The starter fitted and ran correctly, engaging with the starter ring gear to the correct depth because the spacer behind the ring gear is the correct thickness for a 447/503/462, but when I put the engine on to my Spectrum there wasn't enough room behind it to fit the starter motor as well.
So I'm selling it on to anyone who may have a 447/503, or 462 engine. I've been asked if it will fit on a flexwing. I don't think it will as it sticks out from the mag end of the engine by about 5" or 12.5 cms. So if you have a Rans (that's what it came off) or a Thruster, or an AX3/2000, or an X'air that has a 503 or 462 then it will probably fit if there's enough room behind the engine for it.
Although not shown in the photos, there are 3 long bolts that go with the ring gear and spacer so that it can attach to the flywheel. They will be included with the kit along with the 4 extended bolts for the housing.
