The Mohawk Airlines BAC-111 aircraft had hydraulic starters on their Spey engines
|Quoting JETSTAR (Reply 13):|
This is going back 40 years ago, but if I remember correctly, it was either a solenoid or a valve that allowed the high pressure air to go into the starter, and it was an air starter, not hydraulic. The valve was on the bottom of the engine on the upper part of the CSD, and I had to push down on it. but I did not need a ladder or step stool, I was able to reach it standing from on the ground.
I had to push and hold in a button, one of the pilots would lean out the cockpit window and when I had the button pushed in, I would signal them and they then would start the engine and I had to hold the button in until the starter dropped out. On one airplane, they even had the spare part with them hoping to get it changed on the road, that airplane was the one that the station manager wanted me to fly with them all day to start the engine.
