    Default Top Mounted Starters Can I see some pics?

    I 've had some starter problems and to replace the starter I need to pull the engine almost out. I seen Cruzers top mount on his Daytona (Nice Boat by the way) and that seems to be the trick install for a tunnel. Anyone else have some pics of there top mounted starters?

    Any other info would be appreciated.

    Cave, I have a 3-point engine mount/bell housing so if you're looking to use a rail mount my set up will not work.

    Cave,

    If you already have the rail kit, all you need is the correct bell house (or modify yours) and the spacer for the starter. I would volunteer to take mine apart for you to copy if you wait until winter.

    Cave I got it from Tom I belive it's a lightning set up. I know the starter stand itself is a lightning.

    Cruzer I'll take you up on that offer.
    Man You weren't kidding HammerDown. Thats a tight fit!

    Thanks every one. I put a more heavy duty Starter in last night. I'm freaking sore all over!I definitely want a top mount in there. I found that the New but old starter had some water damage in it. It may be the water that seeped through the packing. It was real loose at the packing bolts. At 4700 rpm I get a tad bit of water coming threw.

    H2OMOFO your Bell housing looks like mine. What brand is it?



    Thanks again to all that posted picks. It look doable.
