I'm sure that the one at Amazon will fit.

https://www.amazon.com/DB-Electrical-SH ... B00AWMRLGM

According to the 1980 Parts Manual, the final issue for the 60 series Patrol, the starter motor part # is 23300-C0600, and that matches the description of the one in Amazon. It's totally interchangeable with the one you have, although it looks completely different. I used to have a 74 Patrol with that starter.

DB Electrical SHI0169 Starter For TCM Equipment Lift Truck Fork Lift FG35N3 1977-On /Komatsu FG40Z Industrial Equipment W/ Nissan Engine /S114-184, S114-198 /23300-C0600 /12 Volt CW, 9 Teeth

The price is really good.

Esteban,

I bought and received two. No way do they fit.

Who was it that said they got these to work as a "bolt on" easy replacement? Am I missing an adapter?

Suggestions?

Did you try to actually fit the new starter on the engine?

It is totally different in size and construction, but it should fit, unless the one at the Amazon link has an incorrect part number (23300-C0600).

Please try to test fit, and also take some front pictures of the starters for comparison.

I agree with Esteban, it looks like it should work from those pictures. Know that your Patrol being an early one has the monstrous starter on it. The starter was downsized as technology improved, but it was for the exact same engine.

Thank you RiverPatrol, based on your encouragement I've asked Jesse to "get back in there and keep swinging". I'll report back at the end of the second round.

As RiverPatrol proposed.....it fits! The starting process is stronger now, however King Kong Craig's keen ear isn't happy with the "fit" which he thinks the fit isn't exact and the dragging noise he hears might cause a wear pattern that could become a concern. So, it is far better than nothing and they are cheap at $102 smackers.

If anyone has a successful re-builder of the original starter I'd sure like to have it so I can have my original rebuilt.

I'm glad that the starter is working.

I will try to take pictures of my spare starter that came out of a 74 Patrol, along with some measurements. The starter you have recently purchased should be the same, only an aftermarket version of it. I know by my own experience with both that they're totally interchangeable.

It really surprises me that the fit might not be exact, as King Kong Craig has suggested. Maybe the flywheel gear ring has some unusual wear pattern that's causing the dragging noise.

Hope it's only a minor glitch.

This afternoon I measured the original starter from a '74 Patrol. The following pictures show some dimensions that will help a bit. There might be some minor errors in the measurements, but they are good for comparisons. Also the first picture is not totally centered, but you get the idea.

The following pictures shows the Hitachi number stamped on the starter: S114-184. This is the same number as the one offered in Amazon and other sites when you use Nissan part # 23300-C0600 (this is from the final issue of the Parts Manual, the 1980 one. The Service Manual also mentions the S114-184 as the "type" for this starter. It's possible that the starter in these pictures was not the original from my 74, but rather an original replacement from Nissan. Note the ISO marking. The fact that this starter might be metric has little to do with the fact that it is the proper replacement. I've used this one on my 65.

Hey I know this thread is a year old but did you by chance have the odd dragging noise go away eventually with this starter friend? I have installed the exact one, seems to fit perfectly, but has a high pitch drag noise right at the end when the engine spins on and the starter motor disengages the flywheel. Not sure if I should leave it or be concerned.

I'm going to resurrect this from the grave and see if either of you two have had the dragging issue go away or if you had to make further adjustments. I'm going to buy a new starter soon and have this one bookmarked already, looking to be ready when I either pull the trigger or abort.

Hey, I haven't had the issue go away actually. Doesn't happen every time, maybe one out of seven or eight starts. I haven't diagnosed yet if my flywheel has teeth that are worn or if it's the starter itself. Will take the cover plate off my clutch housing next week and take a look for you if you're interested. Haven't driven that much this winter so it hasn't been on my mind. if it's persistent I might try to come up with another starter solution like rebuilding my original..

No need for all that. I appreciate the info as is!
