  2. I have received a lot of messages asking about the future of the forums once my car sells. Well today it sold and will soon be on its way to its new home. With that said, for the forums, there is more information under 'Announcements" titled "Future of the Forums' you could also copy and paste this link: http://www.trabantforums.com/threads/future-of-the-forums-donations.1762/

    a 6v will do just fine. i have used a 6v in my daily driver for 2 years now. :)

    Thank you for that. Another member on here also said it would be ok, but i was not sure how long it would last. If you have used the 6v for two years then i don't think i need the 12v starter as back up.

    Just don't work the 6v starter with 12v power for more than 5 second bursts. It should last a long time then you can invest in a replacement 12v one.

    Do you still need one, as I have one Andy?....1 NO. 12 volt-type....Dry stored, but never tried, since I obtained it with some other bits/bobs a year or so ago!

    I have used my 6 volt one and its working perfectly. Thanks for that.
