M201 starter motor
A dodgy or dead starter motor may not mean the need for a replacement unit which is a pretty expensive item. If it spins but does not engage it may simply need cleaning. If it has become intermittent or has stopped working completely it could simply be time for some new brushes. Before describing how the brushes can be replaced a bit of information of some of the other faults that I have encountered.
I can supply new brushes in sets at the following cost:
The brushes are made to Ducellier specification by a reputable UK manufacturer but have to be ordered in large quantities which is why I am able to offer these for sale.
Please note the brushes are for the Ducellier 24 volt starter motor fitted to the Hotchkiss M201 they will not fit 6 volt WW2 starters on MBs and GPWs ! If you would like to order a set of brushes please e-mail me.
