    Hi
    I have my starter tore down on my 51 chevy, with a 235.
    It was still the old 6 volt, when I got the car, but I changed it over to 12 volt, but It has the same starter, on it as when I bought it.
    I went to put a new starter drive on, and the new drive will not slip over the splines, on the armature shaft!!!
    Any this is the link, to the starter drive that i bought!!

    My starter motor doest have a number of any kind on it. It is some kind of remanufactured job I guess!!
    Anyway my question is, are there a way that I can tell a 6 volt starter motor, from a 12 volt, by looking at it, sense it don't have any markings or numbers????
    I have it apart, right now, so if somebody could get back to me on this I would appreciate it very much.

    Link don't work. You must use a drive for the 6 volt starter . One for a 12 volt won't work ,shaft and tooth count diff. as I remember.

    Yeah I know they are different.
    I was just trying to figure out, whether I have a 6volt starter motor, or if someone had changed it to a 12volt starter motor, before I got it.(it had no markings on it)
    But the guys over at chevytalk, got me sorted out!!
    Thanks
