Datsun 1200 starter motor for Datsun 1000

I'd just like to add a tip to anyone having problems getting a Datsun 1000 starter motor which seem to be made out of unobtainium, after a lot of research on whether a 1200 starter would fit which was pretty confusing i took a gamble and bought one off ebay, even the seller said it didn't match up with my car but it looked right and the measurements we're right, anyway i just fitted it and it works fine, problem solved.

Thanks for the tip Pedro.
 
Also... Welcome to the forum.
1967 Datsun B10 2 Door.
This information is actually incorrect as i have just discovered that my engine is an A12/1200, bonus for me not so good for the theory of a 1200 starter fitting a 1000, it might be a good idea if a moderator deleted this post, sorry about that.       Pedro
Ive always found it better to use an A12 box as they have bigger better synchros and A12 clutch cable as well which is superior to A10even behind an A10. Pretty much all that is from A12 is better around it and even the A12 is a better engine as well, not just for its bigger size but its extra main bearings etc.
 
A12 also has the ability to house the A14 crank, A12 rods, A15 pistons for a sneaky 1400cc in A12 sized sheeps clothing or bore to 77mm use mazda flat top pistons and have a rev to the moon A13 with 300cc extra than A10.

Not sure if mine is an A12 box or an A10 i bought a wrecked 67 Datsun 1000 speedway car for the mechanicals to fit into my 1949 Ford Prefect as they are pretty well the same wheelbase, the Prefect had 10 BHP and the A12 has 69 BHP so it should go a whole lot better and with the Datsun suspension it should handle a lot better, thanks for the tips on the engine mods they'll come in handy when i need to do a rebuild. 
A10 box has a cable that pulls up... connected to a lever that rotates with a 'ball' end
A12 box pulls horizontally and the cable connects directly to the fork by a hook
Prefects are cool Pedro, I used to have an Anglia 100e and 105e
first one with a kent and the 105e with a crossflow while a friend
was working on a longer wheelbase 100e with a windsor and some
mk1 escort forest rallye flares but sold it on sadly would have bought it
as it was almost finished just needed engineering and paint.
Dont understimate the kent or crossflow they are a fine engine.
As you probably know the L18 crankshaft is also used for the Kent
and Crossflow engines as an alternative for the expensive cosworth
full counterweighed stroker for a fraction of the cost and easy 1800cc
or a diesel crank and sleeved 86.5 bores for a super grunter.

Thanks for the info on the box Neil, mine is definitely an A10 box, guess i'm going to have to upgrade that to something a bit tougher at some point.
 
Yeah Prefects are definitely cool d, just a lot underpewered and handle like bags of crap hence the upgrade 69 HP should go a lot better than 10 HP 
 
And by the way thanks for the welcome to the forum beetwenty.
