COMMENTS:
Die cast version of IEL model RA. Built after OMC/Pioneer took over the IEL Company. The Pioneer design starter utilizing plastic pawls was not sturdy enough and a conversion kit was available to change to a Fairbanks Morse starter. The genuine Pioneer starter housing is as shown with the tree logo. The FM starter housing will say Fairbanks Morse on it.
