Valeo Starter motors...

I posted this info on Flying Avantis 2-up thread and thought it oughta go here for general consumption...

From a tech article in the UK BM Club magazine about a R100RT starter failing in France last year.

Pics showing a BM Valeo and Peugeot starter motors together and they are identical, both showing the D6RA model number clearly on the label. The Valeo D6RA was fitted to Peugeot 200 and 300 series cars along with their Renault and Citroen relatives.

If any of these autos were imported into States in the early/mid 90's, then there should be a ready supply at the local breakers/parts store of a much cheaper alternative.

a '88 R100RT mono in London... "London?"

"Yes, London, you know; fish, chips, cup'o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary Poppins... London!!!"
