What starter are you using? I need to find one that will fit. I was using an older model Powermaster that finally took a dump after spinning my 13:1 383W for almost 5 yrs.

It is no longer made by them. It looks identical to this one:

I have tried a CVR starter. Won't fit. Header tube hits it. The new model Powermaster starters appear to be identical to CVR.

So, those of you with Hooker 6208's (351W in 65-70 Mustang) what do you use?

Thanks,

David Cole

Tilton! I use Tilton's on everything, and in the very rare case it won't work with a header or the like they bust their butt to make it work.

I have a 68 Stang 351W, stock bore and stroke, with the same Hooker headers and same compression ratio less the inches you have.

I use a stock Ford magnetic style starter without a clearance problem. It?s been in the car for over 5 years, less to go wrong with any magnetic starters. The small size is a plus. The parts are cheap and easy to get too.

Dave,

We're just using the big old stock one for now and the 6208 headers clear fine. 351/408 in a '66 Mustang.

Update:

Took the old Powermaster starter to the local alt/starter shop today. It's got a bad solenoid coil. The solenoid on these is built in, but the coil can be replaced. Not that big of a deal. Will cost $25 parts, $20 labor.

He is also going to rebuild a stock type Ford starter for me. The older large magnetic type, that I will keep as a spare in case I need it at the track like I did this weekend.

Later,

David Cole
