What are the advantages to using a gear reduction starter on a stock engine?
I have a '74 TR6 and I'm trying to decide it is worth the difference in
price to use a gear reduction starter. Jim
I haven't installed one in my TR3 YET, but I will. I was asking the same
question you are last year both for my Jag and my TR. I could not see on paper
where it mattered,
Then my son asked me to install a newer high speed starter in his E Type I
was restoring. It is a heckuva difference! The biggest difference is the car
starts immediately. No more long grinding away. It spins faster and sounds
like a modern car during the start-up phase. The biggest disadvantage, at
on older cars with solenoids separate from the starter is the fooliing
around with the wiriing as the starter has its own solenoid.
Best, Mike Moore
