    Gear Reduction Starter Motors

    They are back in, the gear reduction starter motors for SOHC (pinto) engines

    These are 1.4KW gear reduction starters, brand new and ready to turn over the highest compression race motor you have.

    Other starters avalible from elsewhere are only 1KW, your standard starter is 0.7-0.8 Kw and cost around 50, those 1Kw ones go for around 215.
    These new ones are avalible to TS members at 180 +P&P (around 10)

    Now work it out, a 0.2 Kw increase for 150+ over a standard starter, these ones give you a further increase of power of 0.4Kw at a reduction in cost over the others avalible.... Got to be a bargain.

    Send your details through to me via pm, or phone S&C Electrical on 01279-444484, payment via paypal or cheque or collection from Harlow, Essex.

    Re: Gear Reduction Starter Motors

    It looks very much like a standard starter motor. The gear reduction starter motor (called high-speed starter motor) we use here are adapted from Jap units, Nippon Denso I guess. I hate it because whenever I start the engine, people ask whether I have a Jap turbo engine in the Escort

    Thats the idea... these fit no problem as they are the same or smaller than some of the original starters..

    Have to say these starters definately do the buisiness.
    Steve always does all my starters and alternators and I'm always impressed.

    I'm sure if you call him he can do one off applications too, just dont say I told you

    Cheers Graham errrrm Gary

    The engine's running quite a lot of compression now so it would make things a lot easier - only ones I've seen before are about twice the size of the standard one so nooo good
