High Torque Starter Motor


Recommended Posts

After fitting my new flywheel and clutch after the crank bolts came loose on the RBRR and locked everything solid. I have now found out the starter motor is burnt out.

I have now a new high torque starter on it's way from SC


But nobody from SC can tell me if I need the spacer or not.  I suppose I will have to do some measuring.  Has anyone on the forum fitted one of these from SC.

Fitted the starter today. After measuring it turns out the standard 1500 spacer was spot on.

Looks like the starter front plate is machined to give the correct clearance with the standard spacer. Also the orientation of the starter with the front plate is also already correct.
