Starters for FF1600 & FF2000 / S2000
The Lucas "inertia" starters are still the standard for Formula Ford 1600, but the Tilton "pre-engaged" starters offer greater torque and increased reliability.
Part Nos. 1165-002 and 1151 fit most Formula Ford and FF2000/S2000 cars originally equipped with the standard Lucas starter. They are both designed to fit the common 2 1/8" gearbox adapter plate mated to a standard Hewland or Webster Mk5 - Mk8/9 gearbox.
Note: None of our starters will fit FF1600/FF2000/S2000 chassis which have an oil tank between the engine and the gearbox.

These pinion drives are available with 2 different tooth pitches to fit most Tilton Super Starter applications. Each assembly includes the pinion gear and bearings already installed.
Tilton Super Starters
The original full-size Super Starters (3.15" OD x 7.5" L) have a pre-engaged pinion for less grinding against the ring gear.
Tilton XLT Starters
Compact, lightweight XLT Starters (2.75" OD x 5.1" L) are 35% lighter than the original Super Starters.
Lucas Inertia-Type Starters
The inertia drive on the original Lucas starter makes the pinion gear spin before engaging with the ring gear. The ring gear teeth must be chamfered to ease engagement.
