We've all experienced it - a cantankerous engine that fires on one cylinder just as that Lucas starter kicks out! What an improvement to have a starter that cranked the motor as long as you wanted. These direct drive, gear reduction starters do that! We've taken a modern Japanese high torque starter and machined a mounting flange to mate it to an A-Series engine. It has a proper solenoid that positively engages the starter when the switch is activated, and it is powerful enough to crank the highest compression engine. Every race car should have one of these and in fact they are so powerfull you could probably drive around the pits with them (NOT recommended!). The gear reduction is 4.4:1 with resulting 1.2 HP and free run RPM of approximately 3,500. 11 tooth pinion. Will not fit with front mounted radiators.
Mini owners note: for verto ring gear assembly (129 teeth) only. For pre-verto type flywheel ring gear (107 teeth) - order part# C-GEU9404
