I'm thinking about replacing the starter on my 1700 4 speed xflow with a modern high torque unit. Looking at sites like Powerlite they warn that a lightened flywheel means the standard Ford unit may not fit (presumably different ring gear?).
Were Caterham consistent in their flywheel spec? And what's the correct starter to go for?
The engine was upgraded to a Steve Parker Racing unit before I bought it (was originally a 1600 Sprint) but they clearly kept the original 4 speed Escort Sport box so assume kept the Sprint flywheel.
