Gear Reduction Starter Video.

Anyone have a 7.3 diesel that doesn't like to start when its cold outside? My OEM starter quit at 165K, so I forked out the cash for a mean green gear reduction starter. Well look at the video and you tell me! The truck was sitting for almost 2 weeks in single degree weather. It was NOT plugged in, and the glow plugs only cycled for 10 seconds or so. I should done this years ago!

Enjoy!

Wow, that's awesome....

I am running a Ford F350 superduty gasser right now but only because I got a good deal on it...

Going to be all diesel all the time for me in the future and I will definitely run the mean green!

Great Video and thanks for the knowledge!

Well I think all starters are technically "Gear Reduction"...this is a high torque starter. I think OEM is 2 kilowatts and this one is close to 5 kilowatts if I recall correctly. All I know is that it cranks the engine about 5 times faster than my old starter.

Upgrading your cable to the starter helps out a lot too

Yes it is. It's amazing how much better it works though.

It's the fuel injection system international used on the powerstroke motors up to 2008. High pressure oil pump is what provides the pressure to the fuel and it takes some decent rpm to fire properly and start. The older idi motors were tough too but seem a little less finicky. It's an interesting design but does have its flaws (like all designs)
