Delco-Remy starter/generator

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody I bought two used starter /generators last year, one worked one didn't I junked the one that didn't. Well when the engine seized up I took it of and when I put it back on it wouldn't work I took it apart and found that the bushing in the bottom end cap is worn so that when juice is put to the starter it grounds out against the side. so my main question is are parts still available and if not does any body here have one they would be interested in selling. It sorta seems a waist not to be able to fix this one considering how expensive they are. The plate on the sode of the starter/generator had this info "Delco-Remy model 1101695 serial 1L1 12 volt" any and all info appreciated. Thanks, Matthew S.

well i have an old toro with the delco-remy starter generator on it and when it died i had it rebuilt and now it works like new .(all internals replaced/rewound) and yes it is hard to find this type of starter. pretty much any electric motor shop can do this. hope it helped you on this matter. matt

Generally, if you can find a starter/generator shop they either have in stock, or can order, all the parts needed to rebuild the units. That's how I have kept mine working the last 20 some years. Al Eden should know where to find parts if he doesn't have them. Roy

Check with your local dealer. I went through a Simplicity dealer and he had factory rebuilds on the shelf and he took mine as a core. Approx $70. works great, no problems. Chris

I found a 1967 Simplicity Broadmoor 717, that someone was throwing out. It had a starter/generator on it, voltage regulator, and all the wires. It all works, i really lucked out. I got it running, but it didn't charge the battery so i figured that i just had it wired wrong, wich i did. I would think that a starter/generator would cost around $4oo. If i were you i would try to get that one re-built or just by a starter motor for it, not hard to install.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
