New air starter (no connection)


Recommended Posts

$150 is not bad in my opinion for a new air starter. Even if it was electric. I'm learning as I get to installing one on my b model.

Mine came with a manual valve. Updated versions use a solenoid valve activated by push button on dash.

I would say that one on Ebay is for a drivers side starter. It would surely not fit a B model> Too long. But the motor portion looks just like the one I have. Auction says "5 available". If you know someone that ran air start...you could make some easy money on it.

Wonder if Barry could tell us what it is suppose to fit?

My 70 U model had an air starter for years, large air tank on rt side for supply.

a relay valve right under the pyrometer to start truck

Got tired of it about five years ago and installed electric starter,

It was an ingersol rand starter also

Truck was fitted with a governer bypass valve from factory, will put about 150 psi in tank for more starting air
