Bacon slicer alternative ?
#1
Since the bacon slicer in our car is always a source of regular trouble, would it be possible, as they write, to exchange one with this :

I guess one would have to source the later starter housing ?

Thank you for any advice !

Yes you can, Ralf. A common modification but only with a three speed gearbox if your engine has the starter motor in the cockpit. You do need to use the later starter housing. If I have a criticism it's only that they don't 'look' right but most of those I know are in competition cars so that's academic.

Steve - thank you for the quick reply.
I wouldn´t mind the look if I could get rid of the bacon slicer... :-)

So I would have to source the later housing - anyone having one collecting dust ?

And if you're feeling like a proper engineer you can bypass the expensive new starter and adapt one from a Rover 75 V6.

Did not now about that possibility - they are a bit rare around here ! ;-)

But could go that way, but still will need to find that later housing.

12 volts only - is that an issue?

No - car is already on 12V.
