12-volt starter re-wire needed.

A friend with a '53 Wasp that's converted to 12-volts, just broke his 6-volt starter nose cone.

Can someone please suggest an electrical shop that rewires 6-volt starters for 12 volts?  And, come to think of it, he'll need a rebuild-able starter as well. ("Nosecone" starters are all for automatics, aren't they? Forgive me for my ignorance, I drive a prehistoric Terraplane....)

The friend is in New Jersey, if there are any shops located in that state.

    Jon, I have hydramatic starters if he needs one.

    Thanks, Lance, I'll tell my friend.  Since the starter would be re-wired for 12-volts, he won't need a rebuilt (6-volt) one, just a nice looking core.  (I guess!)  I'll pass along your name to him.
