Default GM V6 Toro-Flow

Hello:

I have a power boat with 2 v6 Toro-flow's DH478 and I need a starter motor, not sure where to look for parts for this engines, had a couple of mechanics look at them and they have no clue. Anyone knows where to get parts ?

Welcome USMC3533!

I have two links that may help:

First one is an EBay list for a 478, so maybe that guy has a possible source and/or spare parts.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GMC-Toro-Flo..._qi=RTM2247626

Second link is also EBay and lists a starter for a 423 V6. It's just a shot in the dark as I'm not familiar with those engines so don't really know if it would work. Hopefully you'll get another response. Maybe that vendor has a source.

Good Luck and post some photos of your boat and engines when you are able.

Hi USMC3533, welcome to the club and thanks for your service!

I know for sure you can get the starter re-wound at a starter shop. If you go to the archives and search "starter" you can see a bunch of links. Or google oceanside ca...oh heck, I just did that. You guys have a TON of starter shops locally. You're a lucky guy!
