confused Starter Motor

Can anyone tell me if a starter motor off a XE 250 x flow will fit a 351 cleveland?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Starter Motor

Yes, all you need to change is the solenoid. I've done this several times. If you don't change the solenoid after you start the car it won't stop cranking.

Re: Starter Motor

Yes the bolt up is the same but the solenoid is wrong. From memory the solenoid is actually turned around in a different position.

Re: Starter Motor

Starters from eb-el six's fit in clevo's too. All you have to do is grind a bit off the side of the snout. The bit that goes into the bellhousing, and there a cheap alternative to a reduction starter. They are smaller than the expensive reduction starters too. A bit of irrelivant trivia for ya!

Nice.
Do they clear 4 into 1 headers? Work with the spacer for manuals? Tell us more? I'd head a rumour some time ago of this.....

Re: Starter Motor

I thought the only 6 cylinder starter which worked was the old XY-XB starters. Slightly off centred but fitted the V8 but with 4V Tuned length 2" primary Pacemakers u might get into trouble. They recommend the old Clacker (Clapper) style or similar.

Re: Starter Motor

OT but.....

Holden 6 starters fit and work a treat. You can usually buy these at the corner store

Further OT.....

I bought a gear reduction, high torque starter for my clevo probably about 8 months ago new for $200.

Bloody good thing!

Ask any Auto Elec and they should be able to get them for you. 12 months warranty too.

Re: Starter Motor

I run a 4litre EB style starter motor. Wiring is just as standard and the bonus is that the solenoid on the starter hangs underneath, so you get no heat soak from your extractors. Clevo400,The extractor pipes are no where near the solenoid. I had to grind away part of the starter but other than that it is a straight fit. Yes, I do still use the spacer plate.
