Hi all

What's my best bet for a light-weight starter motor to suit a high-compression L18? The engine was running in excess 10:1-ish when it was built but I expect a chunk of that has left the building. The car is a heavily modified 1975 180B SSS.

Thanks!
Duncan

High comp needs a strong starter and L series 6 cylinder bolt on and do the job but they're heavy. I use an RB30 starter. They're a gear type so they're light, they bolt on and although the solenoid position isn't ideal they fit OK. Plus they're easily available and relatively cheap.

Cheers!

Thanks for the reply! Is this the beast? https://www.automotiveelectricsonline.c ... an-skyline

What's the issue with the solenoid? Is it too close to the block or the steering box? Comparing it to the L18 version (https://www.automotiveelectricsonline.c ... -180b-200b) it looks like the solenoid is going to get mighty close.
