    You bet. John can be found on this site too. He's no sock puppet.

    It was catalog engineering at its best. I took the motor and gearset from one Nippon Denso starter, modified the pinion from another, added a little CNC machined housing, a custom heat shield and voila! A Citroen starter that shares its wear parts with every Toyota, Subaru and Honda on the planet :-)

    John, you showing up at Rendezvous this year?

    Not this year. Maybe some day after I retire from my real job.
