Hey Folks, I recently purchased Gil's new starter from OGTS. I was experiencing
some problems with my stock opel starter on my Manta, getting kinda sluggish
and making a load noise as it engaged the flywheel. I had heard some really
good comments, so I decided to order one and try it out.
It took twice as long to remove the stock starter as it did replacing with the new
one, but the big difference I noticed when I upacked it, was the weight of this
thing. I was shocked at how much lighter it is than stock. Don't know for sure
but it felt like about half the weight.
The real test came when I cranked it......my engine has never started so
quickly and strong...(grinning ear to ear)...I believe this new starter could crank
a diesel with no problem!!! I would HIGHLY recommend it those having starter
problems with the opel starters, in cranking the engine. The cost is very fair for
what you will get...Thanks, Gil
By the way, I'm running a kinda stock 1.9 engine.
