      Restore Full Ability to Start Your Jeep’s Engine. The Starter Drive, often also called the Bendix gear, is a small, relatively simple mechanism that plays a crucial role in the life of your Jeep. It allows your Wrangler’s starter motor to engage correctly with the ring gear on the flywheel so you can start the engine. If your 4.0L or 4.2L Starter Drive isn’t working properly, simply replace it with this part from Vintage to restore easy, efficient starting.

      OEM Quality Metal Construction. The teeth on the gear that meshes with the ring gear on the flywheel can get worn or broken. Internally, the operation of the Starter Drive can break down. Vintage engineers and manufactures its replacement Starter Drive from superior quality metal materials for long-lasting operation on your starter.

      Direct Replacement for OEM Part. This Vintage Starter Drive is a direct OEM replacement part. With your Jeep, pulling the starter, changing the starter drive, and refitting the starter shouldn’t take more than two hours.

      Limited 12 Month Warranty. The Starter Drive by Vintage is backed by limited warranty that lasts for a year or 12,000 miles.

      Application. The Vintage Starter Drive fits YJ and TJ 4.0L and 4.2L Wranglers from 1988–1998.
