The Sky-Tec Flyweight starter is designed for Continental O-300-D through TSIO-550 engines. Replace your old, heavy, stock OEM starter with this lightweight model. Despite its compact, lighter design, the ST5 series Sky-Tec starter is surprisingly durable and reliable. Enjoy its all-in-one bolt-off/bolt-on installation, a great choice for do-it-yourself aviators of all skill levels. The Sky-Tec Flyweight eliminates continuous clutch duty on your smaller-series engine. Take advantage of positive disengagement, reducing wear while your engine is running.
The Sky-Tec Flyweight boasts a significant torque increase and multiple gear reduction. It has a 10-15% faster cranking RPM than heavyweight starters. Install this 9.4 pound starter on your aircraft for shorter start times and maintenance-free use. For your Teledyne Continental engine, use the C12ST5 starter! This affordable option is approved and recommended for installation with all starter adapters. At SkyGeek, find the most versatile and convenient parts to keep your aircraft in superior flight condition.
