    Default Top mount starters

    What everyone using for top mount starters these days? I'm looking to replace the Delco 9000888 two bolt starter. I see the new design, is lighter but is it any good for large displacement BBC's.

Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Do they make a high torque unit as well for a top mount?

    My hi torq looks a little different. Maybe it's just the angle, on a side note I had an issue with mine brand new(probably was my fault) and Hi touque took good care of me.

    Here is a pic of my Hi-Torque starter. Right now I am not very happy with it. I hope to be much happier after I talk to the guys where I bought it.

    I use this one wire BEAST...old 3-bolt Prestolite.
    Weighs a ton but spins like crazy!
    I had hopes of switching to a "rail mount" system w/ different starter however, if you see the little clearance I have, I ain't gonna chance spending money to change everything over and buy one of those starters that have a solenoid mounted to them...and not have the room to hang it! This is the result of setting my pump/engine back several inches.

    Hammer I believe they can be clocked to different spots, maybe not. I'm switching from bottom mount, to top mount, so the engine can be lowered, the botom mount starter was resting on the top of the tunnel.

    Same Prestolite top mount I've been running 30 years.

    It's been overhauled a couple of times replacing corroded brush springs mostly.

    Nice!
    I was going to go this route when i was building my deal, but i have to have the engine a hell of a lot further back that you have, so it was almost not possible....well without it looking like complete hell sitting real close to the back of the splash!
    How is your deal coming CS?
