    Default Mysterious Starter Motor

    Tidying the shed today I came across this S Motor of unknown origin. I t has the same attachments as a D S Motor but it is much heavier and fatter (about 120mm) It also has a large coarse pinion with10 Teeth. It is a Duc 6182A. Does anyone know what it is off?

    Sounds like an original starter for a post '66 D

    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Those thin washers act as a brake to stop the motor spinning.
    Like a mini-clutch pack with steel and friction plates.

    Thanks Chris. It's still a work in progress......The 6182A was fitted to DS 21s. It's seems to be heavier duty than the starter fitted to the DS19/ DS20 etc.I think it was standard spec on American market Ds circa 1968.

    I'm enjoying your blog too, 'that my son is a very tasty motor'. Said with a very thick Cockney accent : )

    Thanks. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. It deserves to be back on the road. After a slow start (no garage, car an hour away), I'm making better progress now. Engine in this summer perhaps?
