Began the process of “de-pickling” an early 2.4 manual Mk2 over the weekend. First thing I found was the starter is now toast (well…it was smoking just like my toaster anyway…). After some research, it would appear that a 2.4 starter is also made of hens-teeth. It appears to be a Lucas 3M100 unit. Doing searches on line, I have yet to cross-reference that number to anything later (or even a hi-torque unit) or other use to actually find something else that used it (that a run-of-the-mill parts store would have) found here in the States. Anyone have thoughts? Something else that will swap in? 3.4 or 3.8 unit maybe? Any experience out here?
