DJ ring gear count

Has anybody actually counted the teeth on their DJ flywheel? I have a manual that says all DJs should be 129, but several sites I've looked at vary between some say a 124 or a 129 tooth ring, both using a 9 tooth pinion. Thanks for any info.

OK, not getting anything that way. Does anybody have the part number or model number on their DJ starter motor? Mine doesn't have one, except a "PS360" in the nose piece casting. Does that mean anything to what starter motor it is? Thanks for any help.

Bruce used to have all of those numbers on his website jeepsurreygala.com. After his passing the website is no longer available. I wish I had copied the whole website and saved it but sadly I didn't. I did try to access it recently through internet archives and while I was able to access parts of it that had screen shots imbedded with the archives most of the links for me went back to specific pages that were not included within the archiving process itself.

The only thing I saved was this note which only included 6v starters along with some exchange information.



803867
(MCH 6203)6v
MCH. 6215 2nd 6v listed
Delco 118077

I also remember the nose cones were just a part number that didn't include the starter number itself which would have its numbers and type stamped into the little data plate.

If someone had a copy of that dealers paper or notice that Bruce once had posted that was titled something like (Common Willis parts exchanges).....either part one, or part two as he had them listed that would contain all of the information you are looking for including original part number and which starter it actually was.

Here's a pic I found of my flywheel when I was flipping the ring gear. Can't tell on my phone but if you could print the pic you might could then count the teeth.

Thank you Charles, On my screen, the right edge is off screen so I can't count that side. I saved the pic and tried to view it. This stupid computer(operator) doesn't know I want to see the whole pic and overlays 'control info' across the top and the bottom so I can't see all the teeth that way either. I'll figure something out how to do it, as I don't have a printer. Thank you for your help.

OK, I just tried counting just the lower quarter and multiplied by 4 and got 136??
Was there such a ring used on Willys? I was hoping for 129, maybe expecting 124, but not 136. Coincidently, that is the ring count for the Toyota Land Cruiser which is the purpose of this whole effort...to see if I can put that gear reduction starter in like the CB3s are doing. Hmmm????
