If your classic Ford V8 engine is an all-out powerhouse, if you and your classic Ford do some pretty hardcore racing, or if your classic Ford engine has been otherwise highly modified for maximum output, then this is the ultimate starter you will need: The Ultra Torque Starter by PowerMaster! Thanks to MAC's Antique Auto Parts, you can have the best selection of high-power and high-speed starters and other engine parts, like this over-250 Foot-Pound high-speed starter. This particular starter has been specifically designed for high-torque and high-speed starting requirements. It has been optimized for starting up engines with an over 18:1 compression ratio and high-cranking speeds. With the Ultra Torque by PowerMaster from MAC's Antique Auto Parts under the hood of your classic Ford, neither the engine's rotational resistance, nor the engine's high-compression on cold mornings will stand in the way of your racing or workhorse Ford V8 engine! || Important Information about this Starter: This starter will work with the stock bellhousing that has a 4.084" starter registry hole and a 3/4" deep ring gear with 157 teeth. If you?re not sure what you have, always measure the starter registry hole, the ring gear depth from the front of the plate, and count the teeth on the ring gear. If you?re using an aftermarket bellhousing and/or adapter, always refer to the manufacturer?s specifications and recommended starter. Please also be aware that upgrading your starter means that you must make sure your classic Ford?s electrical system can handle the increased voltage requirements. PowerMaster recommends the minimum voltage required for this starter is 9.5 Volts, and some starter upgrades can demand up to 500 Amperes from the system. Please be sure to read the directions carefully when installing.

NOTE: Please do not enlarge any holes or grind anything to make this unit fit.
