    rover p6 starter motor

    i need a new starter motor for a rover v8, its from a p6, local parts shops need a car reg to look, so that's no good, ebay shows lots for land rovers at £60, but p6 is £235 , do others fit as don't want to pay nearly £200 more for something the same???
    solenoid is at the bottom of the starter, anyone know a good place to get one??
    thanks

    SD1 V8 has the solenoid at the bottom as well.

    The later 3500 starters will fit, I use one on my P6. Much lighter than the original one.

    I'm in a similar position. How did you sort yours out? Did you go for the £49 SDi one?

    P6 has a different solenoid as it runs a cold start system on the coil . This isn't fitted on SD1 as it has electronic ignition module.

    Contact this guy " Phoenix-Marine-Electrics " on ebay, to see if he can help you out. I had very good service from him for my Cresta starter.
