Bring modern starter technology to your classic Jaguar. These starters deliver more torque than a standard Lucas starter and draw less power. They are far lighter (up to 15 pounds in some cases) than an original and their small size makes removal and installation much easier. They are also an excellent value. Mounting hardware included where required. Highly recommended. One-year warranty. See Documents Tab to view and download our Gear Reduction Starter Notes and Installation Tips.

Despite what some competitors might claim, virtually every "new" starter is actually factory remanufactured. In our case, all parts are checked for wear and are discarded if they don't meet specifications. Castings are checked, cleaned and re-machined. Armatures are rewound and tested. The units are then assembled with new parts and tested to the same specs as a new starter. These are 1.2 horsepower standard Nippon Denso starters, factory rebuilt in the USA.

Each starter is equipped with a CNC-machined alloy mounting plate. In some cases, the plate will need to be ?clocked? to ensure proper pinion alignment and engagement (a very simple process). The pinion size and tooth count will differ from your original Lucas starter but torque transfer is actually superior.
