    Default Starter Rebuild Kit Chrysler 318

    Looking for a starter repair / rebuild kit for a 1976 Chrysler 318. The current starter is an Arco model 50109. Based on a few internet searches, the typical starter is an OSGR style.

    Any help is appreciated.

    You might have to adapt readily available brushes for other starters.

    Try looking for alternator/ starter rebuilders in your area.

    The Arco model 50109 comes up as a Bedix drive motor. I'd not bother with an over/haul.

    Instead, treat yourself to an inboard style HTGR/PMGR starter motor!

    Hey Eric,

    I have this starter brush set, insulators and stud left over from my Prestolite MDT-7021 and 7022 starters that I've rebuilt. I also have a 318 so I'm willing to bet that these will work in your starter. If you need more I can contact the rebuild shop where I purchased these and get back with you. Let me know I'll give you these for nothing.

    Hi Russ,
    I am looking for a starter rebuild kit for a 318 CW rotation. Not found one yet, wondering if I could get one from your shop?

    I'll look and see if I still have the kit you need. In the mean time could you send me the P/N of your starter? Thanks

    Just changing the changeable parts does not mean the starter is 'like new'. A good rebuilder will rewire the fields as well.

    Hi Russ,
    Sure thing. The starter is model MDT-7021. It is a Prestolite starter on a 1974 318 marine engine.

    Hello,
    I just wanted to jump in on this...
    I have a 318 with a reverse rotation (counterclockwise engine) in a 1979 silverton.
    I think my starter just crapped out. It wont crank over and gets very hot. The batteries are good. Had them bench tested and they checked out fine..
    I am just wondering if I replaced my ARCO starter 2095509 (9 tooth counterclockwise) , would i replace it with the new IMI starter?
    does anybody know what is a good one or the right part number, I have been doing some searching and i think it is part LM318B, Could somebody double check that for me?
    And Ricardo, I did not forget about you I still owe you a tshirt, can you please PM me your address again so I can get that out to you?
    Thanks all,
    Eric
