What's in the Box

Info

High torque, high output motors and gear reduction drive design spins the engine over faster, with 50% more cranking torque and LESS amp draw than a stock starter! Compact, offset design gives more header and chassis clearance. Perfect for high compression or supercharged Chevy engines.

Straight mount 6061-T6 aluminum mounting plates work with 153 or 168 tooth flywheels on Chevy V8 or 90° V6. Works on blocks with angle bolt starter flange by drilling and tapping one hole. 

Only 1-1/2 lb. heavier and 1" longer than the 1.4 kW version.

From the centerline of the mounting bolt holes to the end of the starter is 7-3/4"

2 starters and a flex plate in 1 year.

January 09, 2016
I purchased this starter for my daily driver about a year ago and it did great until it would no longer extend. I ordered a second one and no matter how I shimmed it, it would not retract without catching. I continued to use it because I didn't want to mess with it again. I'm currently pulling the transmission to replace the flex plate. I'm planning on going to a factory replacement starter.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Nice unit

August 05, 2014
Fit with only minor shimming. I had previously installed a remote solenoid and converted this starter to use it. I have a 6-71 blown sbc that can be really hard to start when hot. Once I installed a really large battery cable direct to the remote solenoid and to the starter as well as matching direct ground the hot start issue has gone away. I suspect the starter drive will fail some time in the future so I'm ordering a spare. This starter is a good value.
Pros:
  • lots of power for sbc
  • Good Value
Cons:
  • needs careful shimming. follow instructions
  • i don't like the gear hanging by single support.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Have one word JUNK

March 30, 2014
I bought this starter thinking it would work to find out the complete opposite. I installed it on my car and grind grind grind. I tried shimming it every possible way, I even installed a new flex plate thinking that would help but no. When I did get it so it was shimmed decently the drive would bounce in and out that just hit on the flex plate and cause a terrible grinding noise. I then purchased a msd dyna force started and shimmed it up and it works perfect. I do not recommend buying this cheap speedway starter. Just spend the extra money on a higher quality one. I do thank speedway for taking care of the situation for me though. Like it said though one word for this started JUNK
No, I would not recommend this product.

Very unhappy

April 14, 2012
starter mountin block was mismachined. Had to have machine shop turn mounting block down .100" just to get teeth to mesh correctly. Ruined a prefectly good lightweight flexplate due to this problem by breaking off two teeth on flexplate. After machining block down using a .015" shim the teeth mesh perfectly as far as bindix being thrown out and teeth alignment mesh.
Pros:
  • Easy To Install
No, I would not recommend this product.

Small size high torque

October 12, 2010
At a good price [...] this compact starter fit the bill. With ease of installation it provided adequate header and oil pan clearance. The engine cranked instantly due to low starter current draw and fast turn over, it is a good problem solver.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sorry I am not able to find a bell housing with a part number of 8530. This starter will work for any SBC with the straight bolt pattern for a starter. You can use a 153 or 168 tooth flex plate with this starter. 400 flex plates are 168 tooth.

I bought this starter a while ago and lost directions. If I install this starter with the quick disconnect 2 wire harness part number 54574245 do I need to also install a heavy guage wire like that on a stock starter?

You will need to connect the heavy battery cable from the positive terminal of the battery to the large threaded post on the starter with no wires connected to it. Then you can use the quick disconnect harness 54574245 to attach to the spade terminal and to the same large threaded post as the battery cable. The purple wire on that harness will be connected to your starter switch to engage the starter and the red wire will power the electrical system of the vehicle.
