I have a newly acquired D6 but found part of an oil ring in the  drain oil when changing oil and motor runs bad with oil coming out the stack  in spots. Reading leades me to believe parts are hard to come by for the pony motor. Can I update? Where would the starter mount and is there a source for a kit? Serial number is 8U8462. Thanks for the help.

If you think rings will help try ringspacers.com or starbolt engine supply. The pony in my opinion is the most reliable way to get them to go year around.

A pony motor rebuild has been about the same cost as a starter for 30 plus years. No idea of how available parts are today but would think you can still find them.

There is a opening below the pony motor clutch leaver with a cover bolted in place. If no cover and just a flat area you could drill the hole. Several posts about adding the starters on the board here.
