Brand: Tilton engineering

This compact but powerful Tilton XLT gear-reduction starter fits many applications that can't be accommodated with the original Tilton super starter (Part No. 1165-002). It is designed to take the place of the original Lucas inertia-type starter originally fitted to many FF1600, F2000, and S2000 cars.

This starter is specifically designed for MK5 and MK8/9 gearboxes commonly found on Formula Fords. The housing can be clocked to 15 different positions (24 degree increments) on the mounting flange so the solenoid can clear obstructions. Weighs only 7 lbs -- 35% lighter than the original Super Starter!

Note: This starter is designed to fit most FF1600/FF2000/S2000 chassis with the common 2 1/8" thick adapter plate. It will not fit most chassis with the oil tank between the engine and transmission (including '90 and up Van Diemen, Reynard, and Swift).

Body diameter: 2 3/4"
Overall height (body plus solenoid): 5 1/16"
Body length (rear of mounting flange to rear of body): 6.91"

XLT-Series Super Starters are designed for individuals that desire the most compact and lightest weight starter available. Suitable for use on engines up to 400 C.I.D. and/or 10.5:1 compression ratio with a standard diameter flywheel.
