The importance of a good high-torque starter in your classic car cannot be overstated. Whether you’re leaving for that big trip in your classic car or simply returning from a local cruise night, when you turn that key you want to hear that engine turning. Nothing makes your heart sink faster than turning the key and hearing nothing at all or the slow moaning of a vintage starter working to turn over a hot engine. Often if you’ve made any performance upgrades to your classic, the starter is brought to the limits of capabilities and often results in unexpected failure.

Thankfully manufacturers like Powermaster Performance have answered the need with high-quality, high-torque starters designed to fit classic engines. These high-performance starters do what they say they’ll do and even include a starter “Dyno sheet” that clearly shows how your starter performed at the factory. Follow along as Mark Simpson upgrades the performance and reliability of our classic car starter and take 20-pounds of additional weight off the engine. There is little question a few minutes spent replacing your old starter with a new high-torque starter will be returned in thousands of trouble free miles.
