This week I've had a few ups & downs dealing with the mini starter I had installed, problem being it wasn't engaging. After taking it in and out of the trans a number of times, I damaged the nipple portion that sits inside the transmission, by cracking the casting as it wasn't in 100% straight when I began to tighten it back up. I called 440 Source an was able to have them send one to me that was a return, knowing I just needed to replace the casting section out. They were quick to respond, and sent out the starter the same day. Other places I checked for the same mini starter had ship dates 1 to 2 weeks out. But after I changed out the casting from the replacement, still kept having the problem with the shaft engaging, not to mention the positive battery cable clearence issues I had ran into, even with the adapter being sold on eBay. So I thought "F it" to myself, and cleaned up the old starter and put it back on the NYer. It worked fine before the car was disassembled, so it should do the trick. And it did. Today Xenon was over and we rigged up the battery and a gas can to turn the 440HP over. Everything went well on the first crank, second crank, and the third time she fired. Unfortunately, the power steering pump hose blew off just as the engaging started to turn over and gave poor Xenon a shower in the stuff. I guess we can call him "Slick" now.. He said luckily, the way the battery was mounted on the stub frame (see pic) prevented even more fluid from flying in his direction. The engine sounded great and was responsive at the throttle, and can't thank @Xenon enough. Tomorrow we'll work out the bugs and get her tuned in.
