BC320-H Continental Starter (Homebuilt)
THE B&C STARTER FOR CONTINENTAL ENGINES
The B&C Starter for Continental engines (C-75, C-85, C-90, O-200, IO-240, and O-300-A, -B, and -C) solves all the problems that other starter designs have had: worn-out clutches, broken pinions, nagging oil leaks, and catastrophic failure modes. Featuring the durability of all-steel gears and heavy-duty ball-bearings, and the efficiency of a high-torque series-wound motor, the B&C Starter for Continental engines provides greater starting torque, while saving 4.3 to 5.2 lbs. over the old key-type and pull-cable type starters (respectively).
Since its introduction in 1994, the B&C Starter for Continental engines has established an impressive service record as the ONLY starter design on the market that has provided reliable, long-term service for these engines. In fact, many engine shops and flight schools use this starter exclusively, as well, due to its proven reliability and long service life.
Two installation kits are also available: one for replacing a key-type starter, the other for replacing a pull-cable type starter.
If you are replacing a key-type starter, you will need Installation Kit 501-1. Before installing the BC320, a needle bearing will need to be removed from your engine. To aid in removing this needle bearing, you may purchase Needle Bearing Removal Tool Kit 501-2 for $100.00. You may return this tool kit when finished and be refunded $80.00.
If you are replacing a pull-cable starter, you will need Installation Kit 501-3. Before installing the BC320, you will need to cut off the 9/16 steel shaft that is installed in your engine case.
The B&C Starter for Continental engines: proven performance, unmatched reliability ... by design.
