That bloody starter motor...

Starter motor died yesterday morning. Little brother is in debt to me bigtime.

Just thought I'd ask (before a rebuild goes ahead) If anyone has a different S.M. on their Windsor... weather it be an aftermarket item or off a later model Ford, that is tougher than the stocker. Being a duel fuel engine, the S.M. works a bit harder to start the donk when it's on gas, so I thought a stronger unit might be the way to go.
Cheers

I got a Unipoint high torque starter for $200 brand new and am very happy with it, cranks the engine over more easily than the stock one.

Mine died a few months ago, and it was a round the $200 to get a replacement starter motor fitted, don't know what brand it was, but not genuine. Starts heaps better now!!!

Re: That bloody starter motor...

Do the aftermarket units still sound horrible like the stock ford units. I hate how they sound so 'geary'

Mine has a slight big electric motor wine, but does sound far better on start up than the old one and also sounds as though it turns over quicker aswell.

Are they a popular brand?? Where would be a good place to start looking for one?

They seem to be popular. Their catalogue was huge with tons of automotive parts like alternators, starter motors etc. Got mine from Sprint Autoparts (I think they are only in SA) but try any general auto parts place.
