This unit is designed for the Ford application using the Manual transmission. The unit is similar to the IMI-106 but has a shorter pinion depth.

Genuine Nippon Denso starter motor coupled to our patented design.


Yup!

I just went to Checkers and got a starter for a 302 with a one wire and stuck it on and also got one for the other tiger that has my old 331 setup and both have been in for more than 3 yrs
I'm on a tight budget can't have all that high dollar stuff
And by the way I've had my MSD 6al and coil in the car for over 10 yrs and no problems and its all mounted inside the car in the foot well on the pass. Side :-)

So your the guy the tech's would talk about !!! My first 6AL ignition was bought in 2000 and over the next three years I went thru a total of 6 ignition boxes for the same defect....over heated and failed components. One of the last Tech's that I dealt with said there was a guy that had one that was still working...so it must be you. Three years ago they finally redesigned the 6AL
from the ground up but I still hear about the failures from the Cobra guys.
Thinking about it tho...you might not be drawing much power with that punny small block motor...just saying

Thumbs down Not science

"you might not be drawing much power with that punny small block motor...just saying"

Dog,

The ignition system is blind to yours or my displacement inside the engine. Timing does not care. Distributor advance is not intimidated by wasted potential and I have never seen coils recommended for engines under say 5 liters only!

Think before you post about your bias to too much is just right. I think you have regretted it before. Most Tiger owners do not have or even want a stroker. My 260 is a hoot to drive. Not as fast as my 302 but not bad and actually better for most of my driving.

Try posting something that is positive and constructive. Please.

Rick

Default Hi Torque Starter vs Summit Starter

In preparation for installing headers I ordered a new starter. I found the Hi-Torque starter available from Sunbeam Specialties, Part# AS50G for $215.00. I also have on hand the Summit Racing Protorque Starters, Part# SUM-820055 for $201.97.
I ordered the Hi-Torque after seeing some recent reviews on the Summit Racing starter about heat issues and the solenoid. The Hi-Torque appears to have a sturdier build and is notably heavier than the Summit starter. Rick from Sunbeam Specialties said the owner of Hi-Torque has a Tiger, so I will be installing the Hi-Torque starter, fingering he has a vested interested in having the best possible starter for a Tiger.

SO, it turns out that the Hi-Torque starter available from Sunbeam Specialties, Part# AS50G, is for Alpine's only. They took it back, no problems, thanks Rick.

So now I have the Summit Racing Protorque Starter, Part# SUM-820055 installed. Works great and fits great with club headers. My Alpine Conversion has a 6 bolt 289 along with the narrow case 4 speed top-loader like a regular Tiger.

I saw in some of the reviews on Summit that folks were possibly having heat related issues with the solenoid. I have had it in for over month now and no issues.

On a side note, the guy who did my header install, a bloke from England who comes into my area to work on cars a couple times a year, said the fit of the club headers was great! He said they were the best he had seen.
