lightweight, hi-torque, high performance V8 starter motor
Denso is producing a lightweight, high performance starter GXE4442X
for the MGBGTV8, MGBV8 Conversions and Costello MGBV8s. The leading
MG parts supplier, Moss Europe, is supplying these units for the
V8 at £199.75 including VAT.
Nippon Denso starter motor is far more powerful than either the
inertia or pre-engaged Lucas starters and much lighter compared
with most pre-engaged units. The power enhancement comes from the
motor running at a much higher speed which is geared to provide
the correct engine cranking speed. This in turn requires a lower
current, so the voltage drop when cranking is reduced, particularly
in a cold climate with high compression engines. With a Nippon Denso
starter, you will have an engine which will always start as long
as it is set up correctly.

Fitting a Nippon
Denso starter is no more difficult than the starter it replaces and
because of the compactness of the unit, it is much easier in many
cases. Wiring changes are minimal and these are set out in the fitting
instructions included with each unit.
The Nippon Denso
units are brand new, non exchange powerful, high torque starter
motors. They are lighter too and a direct replacement for the original
equipment. So no more costly rebuilds or excessive battery drain.
News of the Nippon
Denso starter motor for the V8 was first announced in the V8 Spares
Updates distributed to V8 Register members by email during June
2000. An announcement in the September 2002 issue of Safety Fast!
that Moss Europe are supplying these units is good news.
