Starter motor issues.

I have a twin cam with a small diameter flywheel, 104 tooth. I am looking for a starter motor option that will fit FORD applications, that will allow for the smaller flywheel set-up. Preferably a high power starter. I have a ARK starter at the moment, but have chassis clearance problems to accommodate this. Is there a modern production compact starter that will just be a bolt-on issue available? I would appreciate any info, thanks.

Procomp Motorsport in Birmingham have just started to sell high torque starters for X flows at a very nice price of £145. If this is what might do you give Mat a ring on 0121 350 3258

I got a small offset starter from Brise as I had a similar problem.

Hi

Might be worth contacting Burton to see if they have something that suits 104 tooth flywheel, as they have this http://www.burtonpower.com/edge-gear...-cf003-9h.html &

Best wishes
Mike

Most of the Formula Juniors and screamers use the small flywheel set up and normally use the standard mini/ford starter motor in conjunction with the proper back plate for this application, ie, the starter motor is moved inwards. The BDA also uses this set up. We also have to put a cut out in the sump pan to accommodate it.....

A 9 tooth Brise geared starter with internal solenoid fits a twink 104 tooth flywheel perfectly.
