Ford Starter Motor Applications
Ford have been (in)famous over the years for “mixing and matching” engine/gearbox/flywheel applications. Engine builders, tuners and individuals tweaking the configuration of their competition or kit car exacerbate this confusion. This is particularly the case with Ford's BDA, BDG and Kent Cross-flow engines.
In addition to this Ford engines are fitted in many Ford, non-Ford and kit car applications. This may affect the fitment of the starter and space in the engine bay causing it to foul the chassis for example.
Our catalogue is as specific as it can be but if it is difficult to ascertain which starter is required for your car, please be patient if we ask you to confirm the following details of the set up of your car including the following details:
Type of flywheel
Number of teeth on flywheel
Starter gear diameter
Number of teeth on starter gear
Details of the engine bay where the starter is fitted (to avoid fouling anything)
