    No wires should be attched to the terminals that have the copper jumper.

    Naw, but I bet there are at least two thing you'll remember from this, one shocking and the other not so much
    eBay selling at it's best I can tell you stock Delorians and quite a bit of slugs so the Turbo is a super nice up-grade.

    I can see how you forgot to disconnect the battery after your test. But we have to be very carfull to remember that when working on the starter or alternator. Not only the large red wires go directly to the battery but the white/red wire on the starter is not fused.

    Glad you did not do any damage.

    VIN 3307 Now Equipped With Eagle Starter

    VIN 3307 is now equipped with the Eagle starter and another happy Delorean owner joins the club.

    I started experiencing having to turn the key several times before the starter would turn over and all of my grounds and power connections were good. I believe the original 30 year old starter and the heat from the DPI header very close by played a factor in the malfunction.

    Definitely a big difference in size and weight.


    Here is where the starter mounts. The block protector plate is in position with the spacer/dowel alignment pin on the far right hole to keep everything lined up correctly:


    Heat shield wrap installed just for insurance so that the new starter will last longer with the hot header nearby...


    Wiring: Both large reds and bundle of browns go to the main post. The two small leads go to the small post. I made new weather-tight ring connectors to go on the starter and a new bullet connector to connect to the existing wiring harness. I also cleaned the connectors and made sure nothing touched that shouldn't.


    Completed installation. The DPI header had to be removed in order to replace the starter. Heat shield wrap shown:


    I'll add a link to the video I created showing the starting comparison between the original Paris Rhone and the Eagle starter. The Eagle starter definitely sounds and spins better!

    Nice job! Man those definitely have different performance. That eagle one sounds like a mini jet engine winding up, haha! Just out of curiosity, why in the video does it look like your exhaust is glowing red?
