I have a spare core that I'd love to get another one; especially if I can get it for $57.
Nope, that went with the client.
I had, in a previous post, given all the information from the NAPA site I found today. And, it now appears others have found the same.

If you use the number Kube uses, RAY 2449609, it is $57, but it say that one is for a mid 50's Ford. Will that also fit the earlier flatheads?

Something strange is going on here. When I look up that number, it shows 1948 Ford.

Interesting. Very cool. I just ordered and it will be here tomorrow. Plus, I had $5 in reward points so it will be $52.00. Opted to pay in store so I don't have to pay the $22.00 core charge.


Edit: Wait, fellas. Look at the mounting flange for in the picts. in the link. It may not be correct.

Tim, Chances are extremely high that the photo you see on the NAPAONLINE site is not the item you get in the box.

Still watching for how this turns out though!

Interesting. I'll report back once I pick it up. Would be great if it's 12V. I can swap over from another one I have.

Look with what we deal with in Canada.
https://www.napacanada.com/en/search...onEnabled=true

I believe in buy local but not when they do this. $323.27 + 27.01 core charge plus 15% sales tax. $402.82 cad or 300USD!
Rock auto is less than half. And that didn’t include core charge.

Right. According to the pictures, we've determined this is not the correct starter since the front mounting plate is different.

It may be worth it if it's 12V and you can swap over the guts to a 6V donor.

I went ahead and bought the 12V 56 Ford model - as I want to go through the conversion process with a 6V core and see how things work out.

I picked up the $57.00 12V Y block starter. Totally different than a flathead. The picture was accurate. Armature shaft is longer and thinner. No cut to a woodruff key and case is different. Oh well. I'll put on my table at Hershey. No returns since it was special order and an electrical part.

you use that outer case, with your 6v armature, and now you have a 12v flathead starter
