ST5 series starters offer the following features:
  • Best starter for 520 & 550 engines
  • Powerful 2.2 kW high-torque, permanent magnet motor
  • Faster cranking RPM - typically 10-25% faster than heavyweight starters.
  • Light weight (9.4 lbs!)
  • Proven gear reduction drive train tempers current draw
  • TCM starter adapter friendly electromechanically engaged/disengaged drive system provides instantaneous release of the starter adapter wrap spring virtually eliminating starter-induced adapter wear
  • Approved and recommended for ALL starter adapters ("classic style", "improved style", "permold", "sand cast", etc.)
  • A simple, easy-to-install, bolt-off/bolt-on, maintenance-free starter that fits the entire "large" series Continental engines (with right-angle starter adapters) from O-300-D through TSIO-550 engines

How much weight can it save?

The heavyweight OEM starters in most IO520 and TSIO550's weigh more than 16+ lbs. The ST5 weighs 9.4 lbs. for a total weight savings of approximately nearly 7 lbs.

How is the ST5 starter different?

The ST5 starter couples a high power 2.2 kW motor with an innovative solenoid-engaged (and disengaged) drive system completely disengages the powerful permanent magnet motor while the starter is unpowered eliminating possible TCM starter adapter wear while providing authoritative, high-RPM starting. Positive solenoid enabled engagement and disengagement allows the TCM starter adapter to fully unwrap under all normal operating conditions thus greatly prolonging starter adapter life.

How do I know which one to buy?

If your TCM engine has a right-angle starter adapter at the rear of the engine and a clean source of nearly located battery voltage, chances are this starter is the right one for your application.
