KCST2 Pull Start Conversion Installation

If converting A65-12, A75-12, C85-12, C90, C145, O200 or O300 with TCM's mechanical/electric pull-type starter to a Sky-Tec starter, purchase part number KCST2, a kit that contains:
  1. C12ST2/S Starter,
  2. KCSW push button starter switch assembly and placard,
  3. STC SE10076SC (engine mod to install C12ST2/S), and
  4. STC SA10077SC (airframe modification to replace pull-start mechanism with push- to- start button).

How much weight can it save?

The heavyweight OEM starter in our Ercoupe weighed 16+ lbs. The ST2/S weighs 9.2 lbs. for a total weight savings of more than 7 lbs.

How much weight can it save?

The heavyweight OEM starter and continuously running sprag clutch typically weigh about 16+ lbs. The ST2 weighs 9.2 lbs. for a total weight savings of approximately more than 7 lbs.

How is the ST2/S different?

The ST2/S starter incorporates an innovative self-resetting kickback protection clutch designed to momentarily slip should the aircraft ignition unexpectedly fail to sufficiently retard timing during start-up cranking. ST2/S starters feature powerful 2.0kW motors coupled with a 19:1 total gear reduction system giving the ST2/S very high torque and very low current draw. Cranking RPM is conservative but nearly always faster than older, heavyweight OEM starters.

How do I know which one to buy?

If you are converting a pull-start to push-button, order KCST2. If you fly behind an IO-240 or you are replacing a B&C Continental starter, the C12ST2/S is the starter to purchase. Consult our extensive aircraft fit guide just to be sure.
