Questions: I have an Autolight MZ 4013 starter with a Bendix 10 tooth gear. Will this Bendix fit that starter?

You probably have a MZ4113 starter motor. This is for the MZ4113 starter only. They used it in the Willys listed above.

Questions: Have '47 w/ MZ4113 Starter. Turning, but Bendix came off of shaft & shaft teeth/spline suffered. Can this product be attached to & be re-placed on existing starter shaft?

This can probably do the trick. You will want to check for any other damage on your starter too. We can rebuild yours if you need us too.
