Datsun 240z 260z 280z - High Torque Starter
Now we know what you are thinking. A Datsun on the pages of BritishStarters.com? Yes. As part of the reconstruction effort after WW2, British technology was licensed to Japanese manufacturers in order to rebuild the economy. When MG stopped making the MGA 1600 engine, they sold the tooling to Datsun.
We are classic car owners too, happy to help any and all owners looking to improve the reliability of their vehicles. A restoration/speed shop reached out to us and asked that we build one of our famous high torque starters for a couple of Z cars they had in the shop. We were happy to oblige.
Fits all S30 Datsuns (1969 - 1978)
This modern starter will amaze you everytime you turn the key. No longer will you have to cross your fingers, and hope that your car will start.
Benefits of upgrading to our Gear Reduction Starter:
Spins your motor faster at start up.
Less Taxing on your Battery - Requires ½ the cranking amps of your old starter.
Physically Smaller - Weighs less than ½ of the outgoing starter. (Easier installation, and more room in your engine compartment)
Advanced Design - 5 roller bearings to support the armature vs. 2 antiquated bushings in your starter. (increased efficiency, reliability, & reduced parts wear)
Customizable - Our mounting plate comes with multiple holes, so you can rotate the body of the starter if you prefer.
Eliminate "Hot Start Issues" - the aluminum case and vent hole allows our starter to "breathe" and dissipate the heat buildup.
Requires no permanent modifications - fits 100% of the time.

#1. If your car utilizes a remote solenoid, and you wish to continue to use it, you will need a “BYPASS WIRE” installed on your new high torque starter. You can easily tell if you have a remote solenoid because there will only be one, heavy wire going to your old Lucas starter. This wire will "bypass" the solenoid on your new starter, and allow you to continue to use the original setup. 99% of customers opt for this setup. The bypass wire can be purchased via the dropdown selection upon checkout.
