So, I would venture to say this starter was born August 26, 1973??
I agree. Your decoding agrees with a book I have.
Correction to myself. The number 1107314 dates it back to the mid-60s, so most likely a 1963 instead of 1973.
Oh cool! Thanks!
Is there any chance GM would use rebuilt starters on new cars? Or were there new ones manufactured and new part numbers? Just wonder if that could be the original starter?
No, GM didn't install rebuilt starters on new cars on the assembly line. They always used new ones and used a specific number for each application. I have a book on starters, and I can't find that number listed for any Chevy car or truck. I wonder if it might be from some other GM application, not a Chevy.
What car did you pull it from? If you can tell me the year, engine, tranny, and any other info about the car, I can look up what starter number is listed for that application.
The starter came off the 70 Camaro SS L-34 4 speed
Todd, pretty sure you should have the 1108418 heavy duty starter which was used for several Chevy engines & years.
Correct. The 1108418 would be the factory starter for an L34 4 speed. If you find an 8418 starter to replace what you have, make sure it has the special cast iron nose used on your application. The other noses won't fit into the factory bell housing and can't be used. The nose on your existing starter would be the correct nose. You can check it with a magnet to see that it is cast iron. Almost all other GM starters used aluminum noses that are wider. Keep your existing nose even if you end up putting it on a different starter.
Wide aluminum nose 8430 starter for auto trans on the left, Narrow 8418 cast iron nose for 4 speed on the right.
Google searched the part number (110713) and this came up:
DeVille V8 7.0L 7031cc 429cid 1964
Eldorado V8 7.0L 429cid 1964
Eldorado V8 7.0L 7031cc 429cid 1964-1967
Series 60 Fleetwood V8 7.0L 7031cc 429cid 1964
Series 62 V8 7.0L 7031cc 429cid 1964
I think it might decode to 1963 August 26 (3 H 26)
I wonder how the main bodies interchange through the years to where different noses could be used ?.
Oh yeah! It was rebuilt. I think you guys are right, 1963. That's all great info thanks!
