L6 starters
« on: March 07, 2014, 11:29:31 PM »
I'd like to confirm the starter usage on L6 cars.
So I'm looking for the original starter numbers off of any 67-69 L6 car.
Especially 67 since manual and auto may have used different part #'s.

Pretty sure the 69 L6 starter I have at home is 1108365. It will be a while before I can confirm that....

Thanks!

X2 Kurt. I can confirm a 1969 6 cylinder laying out in the shed (untouched/unmolested original down to heater hoses and air cleaner filter,which I personally pulled) has its original starter and it is 1108365 also. It also has McKinnon stamped on it as the car was of Canadian build (Buick). Also, there is a real low hour/mileage L6 GM engine (born with) in my 1969 Gleaner K Combine and it, too, has a 1108365 on it.

But that's not confirming the Camaro application. :)
Sounds like this starter had many 69 L6 applications.

You are right. Best I could come up with. The mounting holes are straight across, one short,one long bolt.

Yup, in-line bolts equals the 12 3/4 flywheel.
Thanks!

My '68 RS with a 230 and 3-speed manual has an 1108365, and the build date is "8A" (the day portion was never stamped...laziness maybe?). The car was built 02D. Thanks for all of the research you have done, Kurt. Are you still in Costa Rica?

2 solid 68 datapoints. Only question is on early 68 cars, since the part # superceded the 67 part in Oct 67. But that may be just paperwork, not reality.

Still missing any solid 67 L6 data.

Yup, still in CR for a few more weeks.

Thanks!
