This motor only has one wire terminal and the case is used for ground. ... Magnetic pull (torque) is created by current, and lots of it. The more engine resistance (like in the winter when oil is thick), the more torque this starter delivers because it draws more current. - Dave
Dave, Is the 430 starter motor used only on 430 CIC enginess, or is it also used on Big Block FEs such as my '58 352? If not, is the same true, of what you mentioned above, for the starter motor that is used on the 352?

Jed, this starter is used across the board with little exception.
The 1954-'55 had field coils designed for six-volts,
The 1956-on had field coils designed for twelve-volts. <--I edited this info.

Ford used this starter for 6-cylinder AND 8-cylinder engines.
In 1959, only the 430 had two parts change. The housing and back plate have different numbers.

To sum things:
FAD 11002-A was used in '49-'53 239 (8-cyl) and 226 (6-cyl) six-volt Flat Head engines,
FAC 11001-P was used in all '49-'55 six-volt engines
FAR 11001-A was used in all '56-'59 6&8-cyl engines with the exception of the 430
FAY 11002-A was used in 430 engines from '59 on.

The same armature was used in ALL starters from '54 thru at least '59. Since the 430 uses the same armature and brushes, Ford must have moved the power post in the housing (or some minor change like that).

'51-'53 starters had different armature shaft lengths depending on which trans was used.

I used my '55 six-volt starter on twelve-volts for many years, and it's still going strong. It winds-up fast and my Y-block starts immediately. The starter really doesn't get a chance to run for very long. - Dave

Thanks Dave, that's great. I have saved your site to my fave places for future reference when I take my starter off.
