Has anyone found a replacement for the 2-bolt, 13 tooth, inertia-type Lucas M45G Starter?

I believe a newer Lucas part number was 26163, the Westerbeke part was 11617 which was again replaced by the part number "API Marine LUC 105"... all of which have been discontinued with no additional details. 

I saw a few threads on this site with some discussion but it seemed like mostly preliminary footwork.  Wondering if anyone had any success in actually installing.

Don W. mentioned Delco 28MT but it looks like it has 3 mounting holes and turns CW while I believe the Lucas is CCW.

Ideally, I'd like a to locate a newer solenoid style replacement (not inertial) but no luck yet.

Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Mike

I believe that a Delco Remy Model no 1109377 9M 19 is the replacement for Westerbeke 16762

Thanks Ron.  I believe that is the three bolt version which appears to be located on the other side of the bell housing (away from the engine)... so it turns CW instead of CCW like mine.  From what I can tell, maybe this is how the later 4-108's were set up?  Or maybe it's just another configuration for the engine.  Confusing.

Looking at the Westerbeke schematics, it looks like the starter is dependent on the "back end" which I take to be the flywheel, housing etc.

My back end is listed as "thru August 1979" and takes the two bolt, CCW variety of starter (pn 11617). 

The schematic for the other back end doesn't have a date but it must be for later models and is clearly the 3 bolt, CW type (pn 16762).

The hunt for a replacement continues.
