Prestolite Electric’s starter motor

Prestolite Electric’s PowerPro 7.5 inline gear-reduction starter motor is designed for diesel engines up to 16 liters and to provide consistent high-output power in a small 29-pound package. The 24-volt 7.5-kilowatt starter motor has an operating temperature range from -40 to 248 degrees Fahrenheit and includes the company’s Integral Mag Switch technology that helps to eliminate voltage drop issues by minimizing wiring between the relay and the solenoid. Other features include an electrical soft-start system designed to prevent ring gear damage, a rotatable flange for added versatility and a sealed noseless design for wet clutch applications to help protect against dust, oil, water and other contaminates. An optional Overcrank Protection feature is engineered to protect the motor in any operating condition.
