Is there a standard production mini or light weight starter that will fit a 60s/70's V8?

Yes, but I'm not sure what it is! By "standard production" I guess you want a stock starter that will bolt up to your 65-73 Stang. There's a Mark II Stang starter or later that is just what we need. Alex and the boys alluded to it ages ago, but sadly never checked back on the thread where I asked exactly what year Stang I should be looking for. Hopefully this will draw them out

Yes, thats is it. A true bolt on that i can find at a junk yard. I know that a Dakota mini starter works on all the Mopar engines from 62-76 and I would hope Ford would too.

I wish i would of known this 6 months ago... I I bought a 1.9 kw starter for my Boss car. At the small price of $129.99.... ouch.... What a diffrence it makes.. I had two gel cell batts in the trunk and it still turned slow.. Hot starts for get it... Now it spins over like a jap car... Heres a link just in case you want to look at the guys site. it has some very good information on starting systems and starters in general.

The reason your engine spins over like a Jap car, is because it`s a modified Toyota starter! Most of the aftermarket mini starters are basically a Denso Toyota starter, with a custom mounting bracket to fit the various engines. The Denso starter is a very good piece. I work at a Toyota dealership, and although we change quite a few solenoids (the center casting), or sometimes just the actual contacts inside) I have only ever replaced 2 starters with bad motors or reduction units, in the almost 6 years I`ve been there.Very reliable.

Yeah i used to work for UPS and their entire fleet was switched over to Nip starters. and Alt's. They just live forever. The starter i bought came with a seperate ring and shim so that it could also be mounted to auto as well as a std trans. With a wiring kit to install it. It was a good deal and works very well.
