This product is not eligible for free UK delivery.

A high-performance, lightweight, geared Starter Motor which is an easy-to-fit direct replacement for the original unit on your Jaguar E Type with the 3.8-liter engine with 37.5mm pinion, also S type, late Mk 2, 340, and 240 Jaguars.

It has been found that this starter also fits late XK150's. Draws less current but gives a huge increase in cranking power to start the engine even with a higher compression ratio. If specifying a geared starter for a 3.8 E-Type, please check your original starter pinion gear before ordering. 2 different sizes were used, this being the larger 37.5mm pinion gear.

This starter motor will also fit an MGTC that has ring gear with 93 teeth.
