    Mini Starter

    What starter is everyone using? I have looked at the small high torque ones but have to make a choice soon.

      Im using just a stock replacement from auto-zone. I wouldn't bother with a mini unless you are that concerned with the weight, and I would imagine a regular one would work fine unless you have super high compression.

          RE: Mini Starter

          I am using a stock replacement for my 472 (460 + .060) in the '73 Grandé but am going to a "Robb McRobb" mini for the 545 stroker.

          When I was running Clevelands, I used the stock replacements with no problems.

            RE: Mini Starter

            Stock replacements have always done well by me.

            In the future I'm going to switch to a PMGR starter from the mid 90's Fords. It's a lot lighter, smaller (header clearance) and the cranking power is supposed to be better. I have a used one from a 93 GT that I may use as a core to get a reman from the local NAPA.

                  RE: Mini Starter

                  Found one at a junkyard from a 93 fox body, cranks a lot stronger than the original one especially when I have the timing excessively advanced like it is now.
                  I would recomend it instead of the original if you are making hi-perf modifications like higher compression, timing etc.

                    RE: Mini Starter

                    i use a mini high torque starter on my cleveland and it works great, but unless you have a lot of compression i would use a stock one....... just my opinion, they can be expensive just to have one..
