STARTER MOTOR LOCATION?!
#11
"Kids these days......"

On my first car a Singer chamois I could push start it on the flat with the drivers door open, jump in shove it in gear and off I went,

On my B9 Berlingo I would have no hope of pushing it or changing the starter motor without it being up on a ramp !

If I remember right the singer had a hole through the bumper for a starting handle to pass through, but I never had a handle for it !

Probably a good thing you didn't have one, they could be lethal, most people were scared of them.

My Series III Land Rover has one and it has come in useful a few times over the years. You need to have a special technique of pushing down hard and then holding the handle lightly, as otherwise if the engine starts the kickback could break your arm (my Landie has the 2.3 litre engine). No need for a subscription to the gym if you had to do this on a regular basis.
