Thread: SkyTec Starter Application

    SkyTec Starter Application

    No luck with help on the BAC site. Which starter should I use. The
    SkyTec website is confusing to me. I have a 1973 Sundowner with a O-
    360A4J engine. The application guide states 149-LS for one model and
    149-PM for another model. I remember reading about cowling contact
    issues on past posts. Please help.

    I prefer the 149LS. However on IO-360 powered planes, Mike Rellihan has
    previously posted about a vibration induced failure of the solenoids, and
    recommends a different model starter for that one engine.

    As a friend of Les Staples, one of the owners of Sky-Tec, I am pleased to
    repost the announcement that you can buy a warranty returned overhauled
    starter for $250 plus shipping. These carry the same warranty as the new
    starters, come with a yellow tag and are hundred(s) of dollars cheaper!

    For contact info: Les Staples <lstaples@itexas.net>

    Please note that you will need a 6" extension to allow your current power
    cable to reach the shorter starter. Les can sell you one with the starter
    for a couple of bucks, or you can have a new cable made up from the
    aircraft starter solenoid to the Sky-Tec starter (which is what I do, but
    not everyone has the crimper, etc.)

    I have the 149-LS on my 0-320 Sport. Ly-Con installed it when they did the
    overhaul. The (LS) starter fits nice under the engine where the old starter
    was. I had only one clearance issue and that was near the front where the
    starter solenoid was rubbing the baffling. I just cut a hole in the baffling
    to allow the top screw in the solenoid to come through and covered the area
    with white RTV. Looks great and works good.

    I just went to the Skytec website, they recommend the 149-NL for my sundowner with the O360-A4K, with the 149-12PM as an alternative.

    With the weight and not the cost difference between them really being the main reason for considering the -12PM over the -NL, has anyone installed the -12PM on their aircraft?

    Although 1.6 lbs doesn't seem to be alot, off the nose it would alter the W&B in the right direction.

    Reading the archives it seems that the -LS was the one most installed vs. the -NL, again does anyone have an opinion on the -12PM vs. the -NL?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
