Starter shim

Won't run? Engine, cooling system, fuel pump, carb, clutch, tranny, brakes, etc. The old messages from the NPCA 'Engine & Mechanical' category are here.

I have done my best to research this but can’t find any info. When I purchased my patrol the starter would grind while starting the engine every other try. I replaced the starter that came, not original, with a new one that came recommended from someone on the forum. I still get grinding. I am wondering if these starters need to be adjusted with the use of shims. Any insight, advice or parts to be used would be grately appreciated.

No shims are used for the starter. Did you inspect the flywheel teeth when the starter was off? Which starter did you install?

Will the P40 starter work for the P?

No. They are slightly different, and not interchangeable.

So, no other option than rebuilding the original?

You can buy the correct starter. I need to check my notes with saved links. I’ll do that later on my laptop and post them here.

The P engine of the Patrol was fitted in some forklifts, so the starter is available. A couple of members here had purchased it before.

Found the following in my notes:

http://www.amazon.com/DB-Electrical-SHI ... B00AWMRLGM

This corresponds to
Starter Motor Part #: 23300-C0600 (from the last part catalog issued by Nissan for the 60Patrol with the P engine)
This corresponds to a Hitachi S114-184

I've asked member mad4hws to confirm this info. A link to ebay that he posted in another thread is now gone.

Here are some other posts about the starter:

Thank you. I found that starter on ebay but the alphabet soup in the description made me wonder.

Thanks Esteban. That is the starter I purchased. I will say that it works okay. It grinds about 20% of the time. I thought it was a problem with the flywheel, so I had that taken out, inspected and refinished. Once it was re-installed, there was no change in the periodic grinding. I was lucky enough to find an original g60 starter from a 1967 patrol and had it rebuilt. It too grinds, but not as much - maybe 10% of the time. So, I think that starter is probably a good starter - my guess is I have some other fitment issues on my patrol that is causing periodic grinding.
