Rebuilding a Model A Ford Starter

Running Time: 75 minutes. Learn how to take old starters and recondition them so they operate like new again.

This video has four sections:

  • Introduction: History of the Model A Starter, including some restoration tips.
  • Part 1: Disassembly of your old starter. How to remove each component, cautions about protecting parts, cleaning advice and demonstrations.
  • Part 2: Reassembly as a 6-volt starter. If you wish to restore your starter to the original 6-volt configuration, all you need to do is follow instructions of our experts. When you are done, and have repainted the newly rebuilt unit, it will look like it just came from the factory floor.
  • Part 3: Converting your unit to a 12-volt operation. Many Model A'ers are converting their cars to 12-volt electrical systems and would prefer to use a 12-volt starter rather than a 6-volt starter. There are many potential problems caused by "firing up" a 6-volt unit using 12-volts of power...not the least of which is that sometimes things break, and that can be dangerous. Our experts show you how to make a starter that will be compatible with your new electrical system and last for many years of satisfactory use.


See how to remove field coil screws without drilling. Amazing!
