Ford High Torque Mini Starter
This SVE 1979-1993 Mustang mini starter is the perfect replacement for a malfunctioning starter. An easy upgrade to your Fox Body Mustang, this SVE Ford high torque starter is lighter and more powerful than the originals used on 1982-1991 5.0 Mustangs.

The stock 1979-1991 starter motor produces about 11Nm of torque. This High-Torque PMGR starter produces between 16 and 20Nm of torque. The increased torque is further multiplied due to the gear reduction drive mechanism.

5 Stars   Great little starter.
By on 10/16/2013
Image uploaded by Christopher A. After my starter failing in my 90 GT I set off to find a reliable and inexpensive starter. And of course my first stop was LMR. After reading the description of the SVE starter I check around a few other websites to see some price and quality differences. After browsing for a little while I didn't find any other site that could offer me a good and affordable starter like LMR could. (This goes for just about everything I order from LMR). The starter is pretty easy and straight forward to install and LMR even has a video to walk you through the process. The only difficult part about the install is getting the old starter out, takes patience and a lot of ratchet extensions. After the old starter is out the install is a breeze. The SVE is a lot small an light weight than the OEM one, giving you a good amount of header clearance. Which is nice especially if you have shorties and switch mid pipes out after emissions. Overall this is a great little starter that gets my baby started every time. Thanks to late model for their fast shipping a quality parts! - Chris

5 Stars   Fixed my hot start!
By on 5/29/2014
I have a 10.4:1 cr 408W with 1.75" full headers and one of the primary tubes would touch my 89 oem starter. I had full header wrap on all of them and a heat shield on the starter. But once the car heated up it would not start again until the starter would cool down. Tried the SVE mini starter and it was very easy to install and I now have about 1" of space between my header and the starter. Starts like a champ when hot now!

5 Stars   Love this starter. Easy to install.
By on 6/15/2014
This starter is so much easier to install than the factory started. It takes up much less space. The car now starts better than it did with the factory starter which turned over too slow. This one is has totally different sound and is quick to start the car. The only difficulty is taking the mammoth factory one out. We ended up having to take the right front wheel off the car to give us better access to the old starter.

this starter replaced my old dirty heavy stock unit. it was easy to install even with my long tube headers. it turns the engine over really easy and seems to spin it a little faster and with ease. it looks great under the car too. you just cant beat the price and free next day delivery of Late Model Restoration, I highly recommend this high torque mini starter to anyone as well as Late Model Restoration.

4 Stars   Good OEM replacement
By on 4/23/2015
The starter fit and bolted up perfectly, although I had an issue with the stock power wire not being long enough to slide all the way on to the stud. I have a 1990 GT, and the stock power wire was about 1 inch too short and I was not able to slide the power wire all the way down on the stud without using some washers to ensure a snug connection. It was not possible to pull the power wire out any to get extra length from it either.

The trigger wire thats included with the starter was also too short by about 1-2 inches. There is no slack on the trigger wire going from the starter, to the solenoid, so I had to be very careful on how to route this wire, I was not able to run it along the stock power wire, this would have made it impossible to connect properly.

Im not seeing any other issues with the stock power wire & trigger wire not being able to connect to the unit, so this may just be a one-off issue. Im not sure why my wires weren't long enough to connect straight-up to the starter, but after messing with it enough I got it working and its been about 500 miles since the install. No issues to report with product functionality and my 5.0 seems to have less trouble turning over with the new starter.

4 Stars   Space saver!
By on 3/25/2014
I love the space under the headers and these thing weighs a lot less than the stock one. I didn't feel a difference when cranking my mustang but the sound is different when the starter engages to crank up your mustang. Make sure you wire it correctly or you will have the starter engaging for a second or two longer if you don't.

5 Stars   Works great, Nice part
By on 3/1/2016
I was having cranking issues on my '89 Vortech-charged 302, mainly a slow, sometimes-hanging start. My battery is relocated to the trunk, so I wasn't sure if it was due to the extra distance of the cable or if my 26-year-old starter was starting to fail. I knew I was going to have to start troubleshooting the issue, but I decided to just go with this starter first, mainly because of the way the wiring changes… being that the main battery cable basically goes all the way to the starter, without the stock solenoid having to pass the power to it. This starter also makes better use of the available current and is stronger than the stock starter (so they advertise). The result; the starter spins up very quickly and quietly and starts the car fast. Much, much better than the behavior of the stock starter. The sound is weird to get used to, as it sounds like a Camry or something but it fires up the car great. The only aspect I can't review is the longevity of this part. Will it last 20-30 years like the stock units? Who knows… but so far I'm very happy with it. The price is great too, only a few bucks more than a remanufactured stock unit.

I was in desperate need of a new starter for my 93' foxbody. After browsing LMR for all my foxbody needs,SVE starter was purchased and delivered to my door in a timely fashion.Vehicle was raised up and right wheel was removed for better access to the top bolt in through the K-member.In the end,we opted for a longer extension and accessed the top bolt through the front of the vehicle.Starter swapped,cable ran,and now I have one of the quickest starting foxbody on this side of town.

I bought this starter last month. I was a bit reluctant to buy a starter online. I was afraid if I got a bad one or had to send back in the future. Was told if I have issues with it in the future I would have to send back but could get a refund. Can't ask for any more than that! So far a great starter. I'm about to purchase a SVE radiator next.

By on 11/6/2014
Installation was easy, especially while I had my engine out for overhaul. Light weight, durable, and at the right price. Once I put the engine and transmission in the car and hooked the wiring up, it cranked the engine over with less effort than the old bulky stock unit.

This was a straight bolt on and the fit was perfect. The starter is lighter and smaller then the original. The quality looks and feel good. I replaced the failed starter on my 94 GT with this starter and has been starting my mustang every time with no issues.

My 1991 mustang gt convertible still had the original starter, which began to fail. So, I've decided to replace it with a SVE high-torque mini starter. So far, it works great. Sounds quieter than the original starter and cranks faster with less amp usage!
