1929 Stutz M8 Starter mechanism

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

When the Stutz Vertical 8 cars first came out in 1926 the starter buttons were above and to the left of the accelerator pedal, sort like a 1950s headlight dip switch. Soon after it was moved to the right and above the accelerator pedal, probably to help expand the right-hand drive market.


Would anyone have a spare 1929 style engaging shaft that the button pedal was linked to? My car came with the earlier setup, which I shall happily trade, balancing out any difference in weight with extra dollars. 


Here is the earlier version of the engaging lever.


Many thanks for viewing the thread.
