An all-makes aftermarket model of the 105P55 starter from Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America (MEAA) is now available for Navistar's medium-duty International I-6 family of engines. The product marks MEAA's first foray into the North American medium-duty market, according to David Stone, executive director, MEAA-Heavy Duty.
The starter is available for engine applications including the International DT466, DT530, DT570, HT570, MaxxForce DT, MaxxForce 9 and MaxxForce 10.
Designed to stand up to extreme use and tough environments, the starter eliminates the need to add a premature failure prevention device such as over-crank protection, MEAA said. It is covered by MEAA's Diamond Gard warranty. Information on the starter and warranty can be found at MEAA's aftermarket web site, including claim forms, program policies, part and dealer locator, as well as starter, alternator, integrated mag switch and solenoid installation guides, product literature and technical data.
Diamond Gard is a limited three-year warranty program covering any Mitsubishi Electric All Makes heavy-duty starters or alternators sold prior to Dec. 1, 2008, and three years old or less that fail under normal usage.
