        So I have an 87 mustang gt car. I am having interference issues with this starter have a 5 speed car 157 tooth flywheel . The starter is defiantly not engaging with the flywheel at all.Painted the teeth on the starter def hitting on the inner side of flywheel. When i went to autoparts store. I was comparing the starters and it lookes like the 1990 to 93 uses this offset inner housing were the armature comes out, The 1987 to 89 looks like its more centered up. Stater bolts up fine and tried rotating it with the small amount you can when its bolted up and still no luck. I have not tried using a stock starter yet due to the engine i got did not come with one. I no you don't need to shim any of these starters. If you have any insite or if I should try to go back to the oem starter let me know. Kinda confused because it says will work with 79-95 5.0l but is it to a specific application. 0 answer

            Strong little starter

            For the money there really isn’t a better starter on the market. This one is very light and easy to install. Has more than enough torque to spin a 11-1 motor with no problems. I have a few of these starters and use them on all of my builds with no problems to speak of

            Quality Starter

            Replaced the original starter after 29 years. Overall, this was a very simple installation and I am pleased with the results. I would recommend this starter.

            A Great Upgrade

            This starter is lighter and more compact than the OEM starter. It is also looks nice. It is easy to install and wire. I would have preferred the Zinc finish as pictured. It would match my Zinc finish Canton pan. The silver polished finish looks nice too. It is worth the money. This is not on a Mustang. It is on a Mustang donor Cobra Replica.

            You need this Starter.

            I had severe heat sink issues with stock starters which caused hot start issues. After doing my homework I decided to purchase this product. Let me be clear, THIS IS THE BEST MONEY I HAVE SPENT ON THIS CAR! My Mustang is a 1986 and is highly modified. The Long tube Headers caused the old Starter alot of problems. This product came well packaged with excellent instructions. It is small, light weight and very well constructed. I couldn't be more pleased with ease of installation and ESPECIALLY how well it works. Quiet and powerful and not a single hard start issue. I rarely post reviews so this is something special.

            I had trouble with the OEM 5.0 starter so I picked one of these up and it fired right up. I run mid length headers in my 66 and this starter fit with no issues I would definitely recommend it.

            Installed this starter after my stock decided to break. Cranked the engine over with no problem even after a hot day of cruising around. Will buy again if needed.

            Works great! Used on a 393ci 10.5:1 CR

            Tried using, the stock starter on a freshly built 393 with 10.5:1 compression ratio and it would only turn the engine over (struggling each time) two or three times then it would lock up. Swapped in this starter, all those problems went away. Starts right up now, very fast, no issues. Easy swap.
