I've got a vague recollection that the Valeo D6RA7 was also fitted to things like the Citroen AX and Peugeot 205's. Not Japanese I know, but it might throw up some other part numbers to search.
Also the name Nippondenso (?sp) comes up occasionally with reference to alternative starter motors for airheads, but I can't remember more than that.
