I retired from Freightliner in 2009 as a Senior Customer Support Rep. I lived this one.

You are absolutely right. I read pneumatic and thought hydraulic! Hydraulic starters are used on big stationary engines and large ship engines. But I still haven't ever seen a spring starter on a truck! BB

Love it Brian but that SR 71 ain't a truck! ( When they were active at Beal AFB they made a turn over my house! Tankers in the morning Blackbirds in the evening. I saw my first Blackbird launching , they gain alt. right off the runway, in 1966. I thought it was a rocket ship!. It was 15 years later that I found out what I had seen. Very top secret!)

Weather my answer matches what your looking for or not ! I know I used spring starters on trucks in hazardous areas ! In Mines, grain mills, Chemical plants Etc On Diesel trucks! You couldn't use electric start because of explosion and fire from gas or dust or fumes! I remember cranking them, and they also spun the engine much faster then an electric starter. Weather they used them in the 30s and 40s I have no Idea! if no one believes me, That's fine I put my 2 cents in.

I remember putting one on a mac truck in a chemical plant that had hydrochloric and sulfuric acid reactors to transport the 10 ft. diameter by 15 ft. glass replacement section for the reactor when I was with a Canadian riggers crew!!!

So I know they were on trucks Even though I cant prove it with google or bing or etc

LOL

Who cares any way; I did but not now!Ive been googling all day LOL and my one finger has a blister from : smash:

Jester LOL

That's what I like about this thread. You learn something new each day! I did not know that there was a truck application for a spring starter! The missing truck starter I was looking for was the good old Coffman Starter or Shot Gun Starter We had so much fun with it yesterday I thought I could catch you guys. I did receive a private message from a person who knew all the starters I was looking for but didn't want to ask a question. So it's up to you Jester to toss another one out there. Got one about your mother's Turbo-Supercharged High Lift Ironing Board?

You might like to know that cart is sitting next to the Blackbird at the USAF Museum in Dayton Ohio. A MUST place to visit. And it's free!
