Mk2 pre engaged starters? 701M

Recommended Posts

Ok   so , I have picked up a lighter flywheel for my crossflow Gt. It has a pre engaged ring gear on it and I was going to change it. I am thinking maybe now I will go pre engaged so my question is which starter will fit mine, without fouling the steering box?. The flywheel is marked 701m is this mk1 escort? also has 346340 on and has 135 teeth so I think I need a starter with 10 teeth is this correct? Any advice guys welcome...  PS my old export estate did have a pre engaged starter that I think was a cold weather option.

Not sure whether it makes a difference on the flywheel , but 701m is a late Lotus block . I do have some mk2 pre engaged starter pinion and barrel but would have to check if 9 or 10 teeth . Steve.

Mk5 cortina1.3 & MK3 Capri 1.3 (80ish onwards ) used that type starter.

Would you mind checking for me please, I am worried about getting one with the solenoid in the right place not hanging down too much
