Ford Long Shaft Starter Motor Info.

I am posting this info here so that I can find it again! It may be a help to you also. Please make corrections or additions that are pertinent. Thanks

Known in the industry as Lester 3110. This is the 6 volt Ford long shaft starter motor commonly used on winches.

Was used in 1953/54 Ford Pickups and some Mercurys.

Brushes are NAPA part # F502 these are made by the Echlin Co. in the USA.

I visited a local 'Auto-Electric' repair business with my 12 V FLS recently seeking a new bushing for the front of my motor. He not only had one, he said that the front motor housing could actually handle two of them and promptly installed them both for a total $6 charge. Asked about brushes, and he had them too. I was surprised, but he said that any reputable Auto-Electric business would also have the parts.
