high torque starters

Recommended Posts

Hi all


Can someone confirm if the SJ912E0031 is the same product as the Powerlite RAC415 ?

Are there other options for a lotus esprit S2.2   (912 engine)

The PO of my car fitted that one.

It doesnt have the "auxiliary" contact though for bypassing the ballast resistor on starting. I did make up a diode arrangement for overcoming this but never fitted it as the car seems to start fine with the ballast not bypassed.

These starters are really good on these engines as they greatly improve access in that area to the distributor etc. Definitely recommended.

I do not need the auxiliary contact, since I have a pertronix with a flame thrower coil epoxy 3 OHM (instead of 1,5 ohm) and I do not have to use a ballast resistor anymore.

But are the SJ912E0031 and the Powerlite RAC415 the same?
