JONATHAN MCDONALD: '79 to '91 Mustang 5.0s were cursed with this ginormous starter. Not only is it big, but it's heavy too, weighing in at 5.7 pounds. The power output is antiquated at best. And the way it's wired, the fender mounted relay, or solenoid carries the full current, causing it to fail quite often.
In 1992, Ford introduce the PMGR, or Permanent Magnet Gear Reduction Starter, commonly known as a High Torque Mini Starter. This type of starter has an internal gear reduction drive that allows it to increase torque output while reducing current draw. This means it can crank stock engines with ease and even handle high compression engines.
Another feature is it carries its own heavy duty solenoid, allowing you to change the wiring and take that current load off of the apron mounted starter relay. Finally , it's significantly smaller, allowing for increased header clearance. And it only weighs 3.6 pounds.
Our SVEPMGR Starter features all of these benefits plus a limited lifetime warranty. It is a direct replacement for '92 to '95 Mustang 5.0s and is a bolt-in upgrade for '79 to '91 5 liters. Many people ask, how difficult is this upgrade to install? Well, it's not much more involved than a simple starter swap.
The first thing to do is pick up your SV Starter at latemodelrestoration.com. We include the needed trigger wire to piggyback along your starter power wire. But let's say you're in need of new starter cables. Well, we've got covered with our 5.0 Resto Starter Cable assembly.
Begin by disconnecting your battery. Raise the car and remove the two starter retaining bolts. Slide it to where you can access the starter power wire retaining bolt through [? the cane ?] member. And go ahead and remove it. And slide the starter out of the car.
If your Mustang is filthy mcnasty like ours, take a few minutes and run up to the car wash and give it a quick clean up. You'll love yourself for it later. Access the apron mounted starter solenoid and move the starter power wire to the same terminal as the battery positive cable. Slide the ring eye of the included trigger wire over the now open relay terminal.
Run the trigger wire along your existing starter power cable down into the starter area. If running a stock starter cable, you will lead to enlarge the eyelet hole with a 3/8 inch drill bit. Slide your new starter into place and position it to where you can connect the starter power wire and the trigger wire through [? the cane ?] member. Position the starter in the bell housing, and reinstall the two retaining bolts. We'll lower the car, reconnect your battery, and test for operation. Go out and enjoy your new SVE Starter.
