This is the 2nd stock starter I have broken! Any idea as to why they keep breaking? I never had any issues until I rebuilt the engine. It turns over fine by hand, the starter doesn't seem to have any issue cranking it either. Matter of fact I didn't even know it was broken until I took it off to pull my busted trans. It has been making a clicking noise like there was a slight short in the wiring or something, but there wasn't any wiring issues so I just let it go. The CR is a little over 12:1 and I have the MSD pulling 10* of timing on start up. Its not busting the snout either its busting the corner off of the housing where it bolts to the block! Both starters broke in the exact same spot.

I guess I'm gonna have to buy a high torque starter this go around.

we still ise the stocker seems something is not aligned correct. maybe its binding up just enough it beats it up and eventually cracks it.

Is this a car or truck starter. If it is a car starter with 2 different bolt lengths then it makes sense it is breaking. Switch out to the truck starter body with the staggered bolts of the same length. It'll stop that problem.

what about for a 15.5:1 compression engine?
I dunno. Never tried a CR that high with a 6.0L truck starter but the 12+:1 motors break the bullshit ear off the car starters all the time.Might just crank slow worst case.

Ignition kill switch.............temporary "off". Get engine turning freely and then release the kill switch.

Takes the load off the starter.

Do not crank the motor then turn on ignition, your retard will not work. You must turn on ignition, then crank it, in order for the start retard to work.

If the engine is free spinning with no fire, it's not going to matter if you have a start retard or not.
