Default Best place to buy new starter generator

I was wondering where the best place to buy a new starter generator for a club car would be? I want a quality one. Also are the threads left handed or regular on the shaft to get pulley off?

Thanks

Why do you need a new one? Most of the time the brushes are worn out and they're $40 a set and easy to replace.
If its not charging check the voltage regulator. Those fail more often than the starter.

I have bought several off of Ebay for 112 dollars with free shipping. I used them on my fleet of maintenance carts the grunts use. They last quite well.After 2 seasons I usually have to replace the brushes....after about 3 brush replacements the armatures are really well worn and the bearings are loose so I **** can them. Then I buy another new one. I have NO complaints about the starter generators I have bought off of Ebay.

It sounds like other people have had better luck with aftermarket starter/generators than I've had. On the two Turf 2's that I maintain, I'm on the third cheaper aftermarket unit in the past two years on one of the carts. All three came from three different sources as I was trying to find one that was reliable. The cheaper units basically suffered armature failures way before the brushes got even 50% worn. I've also noticed that the cheaper units make a whining sound during operation (the OEM units I've used don't exhibit that sound at all).

The second Turf II has an OEM starter/generator and that cart gets used more than the one with the aftermarket units. It hasn't had the first bit of trouble in the four years that we've had the cart.

As much as I hate to do it, I'll likely have to start saving up to buy the ridiculously expensive OEM units just to keep from having to replace these units each year.

I got one on Amazon for my cc ds and it locked up one day and almost threw me over the steering wheel (it would have had I not been wearing my seat belt that day)
36mph to 0 in a heartbeat on a down hill slope in no fun at all when you have a reven on one side and a ditch on the other
The armature flew apart inside and trashed the whole thing(luckily it didn't take my battery or other electrical stuff with it)
I sent it back and got a refund as it was under warranty (now I am going to install new brushes in my old one since it's STILL working and is the one that was on the cart when I got it)
This was after I had to get my dad to tow me home with my side by side(not fun on a gravel road and your being towed)

Just keep this in mind YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!.

My 2 cents find a good alternator/generator/starter repair shop in your area and get it rebuilt.
