MGB - High Torque Starter
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 Lucas 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.
#2. On some early MGB's (pre-1967), based on clearance issues, some starters will need to be clocked in such a way that the body of the starter will be in the way of one of the mounting holes. For these customers, the solution is to remove the mounting plate and "preloading" the one mounting bolt. The clearances to tighten this bolt are tight, but achievable.
#3. Some "late" MGB's have a 3-wire hookup. This 3rd wire is a direct line to the coil. The starter acts as a pass-through to provide extra juice to the coil on cold startups. We accomodate those owners with a small screw terminal on the opposite side of the starter from the ignition terminal. (see pics).
