Reply to "Stock Starter issue on High compession Engine"

Starter torque is lost in the diminishing outside diameter of the armature.

That can happen two ways, wear of the brushes against it, a rebuild that cuts the armature smooth on a lathe.

With a full armature, there is rarely a problem.


Solution: a new "high torque" starter OR an ignition that retards the advance at start.

Both the Motorcraft and the Pantera-Electronics do that.


Given the choice between the two, I settled on the Pantera-Electronics simply because it is the only ignition that I know of that fires a fouled spark plug and will clean it up while running.

The Motorcraft and MSD do not.


I have an Accell starter on my Pantera. A Tilton race starter on my 347 in my GT350. Both work fine on hot engines.
