This is a DSM Performance Products SUPER High Torque Chevy Gear Reduction Tilton/Hitachi Mini Starter. This unit is rated at a full 3hp also included is the shim kit, bolts and fitting instructions. OUR STARTER FITS ALL SBC / BBC Chevy Big and Small size flywheels. Rather than list all the Chevy engines, we can just say it's fits all of them prior to 99 Gen III.
Tilton Style High Torque Gear Reduction Starter Motors turn the engine over at a higher rate than the stock starters. Producing much more cranking power. These starter motors also feature an offset design resulting in better clearance between the oil pan and the starter. The mounting block face-plate is adjustable. This will start any stock or medium built street rod, with ease under 11 to 1 compression ratio.There are several different manufactors of this type starter, we are convinced this is the best unit on the market. The Tilton style seems to be the choice for most race cars, and street rods. We do stand behind our products 100%.
This starter weighs 10.2 pounds. This is less than half the weight of the early style delco starter.In the world of performance, this is an incredible weight reduction from the front half of your car, for as little as it cost. Header clearance versus using the large Delco starter is another bonus. Notice the pictures of the unit mounted on an engine. Our store manager was able to easily place most of his hand between the headers and starter. The clearence is more than enough for any headers on the market. The front plate is able to be rotated for even more clearance. Do not be fooled by the physical size of this starter. It produces enough power to easily start engines with up to 11:1 compression ratio. Big block engines are no problem as well. This item is brand new, not refurbished , nor is it a discontinued item. This is a premium series starter. Ery few sellers have this new style starter. No where will you find these starters at this price. We have used these starters on our high compression engines with no problems at all. Let us know if there are any other items you will need for your project. We will not be undersold! We will not sell any product that has failed more than we consider normal. So far this unit has passed our test.
