Questions & Answers
Questions: I have a 47 CJ2A with this starter. I have taken it to the repair shop to rebuild twice. The issue is the cap on the end of the bendix drive keeps breaking off at the threads where it has been hammered for the indentions. The top two threads sheer off after maybe 10 starts. We have a 12 volt battery driving the electrical system and I assume this original starter is 6 volt. Can you tell me if the extra voltage is creating this problem or is my repair shop just using crappy china parts. Please let me know if this bendix drive will hold up to the 12 volt start.

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.
