Prestolite Electric’s Leece-Neville Heavy Duty Systems brand is offering a new in-line gear reduction starter motor called the M110608 for Paccar’s MX-11 and MX-13 engines.

The starter motor also works with Peterbilt and Kenworth 2010 and newer engines up to 16 liters in size. The starter is designed for improved performance and reliability as a bolt-in replacement for engines served by Paccar, Mitsubishi and Delco Remy 39MT units. The in-line, gear reduction design provides greater power from a lighter unit and is made to fit in tighter spaces.

The new Leece-Neville 12-volt M110608 starter motor features Prestolite’s Integral Magnetic Switch /Soft Start Relay technology, which helps to eliminate voltage drop issues by minimizing wiring between the relay and solenoid. Other key enhancements include a next-generation commutator with an oversize copper cross-section, enlarged armature to minimize air gap losses, heavy-duty brush plate for improved conductivity, and an e-coating on the housing for resistance to corrosion.

Leece-Neville starters and alternators are manufactured by Prestolite Electric, an original equipment and aftermarket manufacturer serving customers in the trucking, construction, agriculture, mining and other markets.
