Looking for 13.5 bhp and may have found it

Might it be repairable? That could be cheaper, and also means that it will fit the existing brackets and cables.
I like/use Brise.

Had a brise they say it not repairable. Not willing to pay £300 for a new one. Looking for a sensibly priced replacement.
David, I bought a Wosp starter a couple of years ago from AES, cost was £216 and it's been brilliant (high powered K-Series). Let me know if you need any more details.

Stu et al,
Thank you for your posts. I was just looking for a bog standard starter without having to pay £200+.
The seven rarely gets used last year 100 odd miles, and when it does its mainly for sprints and hill climbs.
I have had a quick search on BT and it looks like a ford starter. just wanted to see if any new the part number, so i could cross check it.
thanks again David
Space is very tight because it's a Rover engine mated to a Ford gearbox. Off the shelf starters might foul the block or even the exhaust primaries, the K-Series block already has a chunk ground out of it to give space for the starter motor in the Caterham installation.
I'd suffered for a few years with starting issues and believed it was battery issues, eventually I bought the Wosp starter and it was a total transformation, wish I'd done it sooner. Give Chris a call ...
I have a cheap and cheerful starter too.. £112, found to be quite reliable.
I went through all this last year and it was a pain in the ....
If possible get the old one rebuilt ! ! ! I bought a Brice but couldn't fitted it due to the engine block fowling . In the end I took it to Seven and Classics who machined/cut a section of the engine block so the Brice could be fitted.
