    Hi,

    ....... snap hole cover....

    Maybe in the electrical department of one of the big box stores. Perhaps they stock the larger sizes of junction box knockout hole plugs.

    Iím gong to tag on here since Iím striking out searching on Tapatalk. Didnít somebody say the modified the rear leg of the cooler bracket to bolt to the SkyTec starter? Here is what mine looks like. Obviously the previous mechanics left it like this to clear the positive terminal.

    Here is how i do it. This actually came up yesterday when a Super Cub I rebuilt trashed a starter. The light weight Kelly starters MZ-6204 etc. with the standard Bendix are no longer made that will fit without modifying the oil cooler bracket. The E-Drive from Hartzell will fit if you have the standard exhaust without modifying the oil cooler bracket but won't fit the Sutton exhaust, too long, and are stupid expensive $700 plus.

    Last one I did I shortened the rod and bolted it to the lower lug... Keeps it clear of the starter cable...

    My starter just crapped out, and am thinking of replacing it with the Sky-Tec NL..... the B&C is just too much $$ for me.

    Just a question before I order.....Can you cover up the starter hole in the cowl with the NL model?

    All the ones I have installed you could. The gear comes out as far as the ring gear. That is the only thing that protrudes forward.
