Re: Starter source for the 134 powered fc150s
i hear ya. i used these toyota starters on all of my CJ5 builds though. and they work fine.
i buy from walcks all of the time. i think he has a great products and unbeatable customer service.
but im in it for the driving aspect i just bought my FC a month or so ago, and i cant wait to drive it asap.
im not rich by any mean either. i am having a hard time swallowing "official FC150" prices when many early cj5 parts for the 134F head motor and T90 transmission are much cheaper. and i am familiar with them.
As an Industrial Distributor, I recognize you can always find something cheaper somewhere. But what you can't always find is service, and Walcks services the hell out of their customer base with knowledge and parts unavailable elsewhere. If they go away we all lose. I buy from them because if I have a question, I know they can walk me through a solution. I'm willing to pay a little more to help keep a company that supports us in business.
Not sure if this has been discussed, but a toyota starter will bolt right up to the 134 powered fc150s.
Way cheaper than the 500 dollar replacement from walcks.
Now if I can source a new, sub 300 dollar radiator...
