I was wondering what difference there is in the driveline of a Super Sportsman vs. sprint car? How do they make them self starting?

They have a bellhouseing with cut down flywheel thus allowing for a starter. Sprint cars do not have either]

and they beat the heel out of those starters,often starting 'in gear'. and they are about the size of a starter found on most 4 cylinder production cars.

Reason for asking is i was wondering if one could be used or adapted to a vintage sprint car, or if the cockpit area wouldn't allow it...

You can put one on a vintage sprint car, but unless it is a car with no real history I wouldn't. In my mind I would want the car as original as possible.

Maybe she wants you to do the pushing for once. ;)

Maybe! LOL The bellhousing that the Super Sportsman use, is that just specific to that division or is it used elsewhere on another type car? I'm envisioning the thin old style BRP bell housing the older modifieds used for their Bert trans. Is it something similar? and is the starter inboard or outboard on the Super Sportsman? Would anyone have a picture of how it is set up in the actual car? thanks again, ron c

I think it was Halibrand that use to make an aluminum bell that was designed to use with a clutch that lots of the sportsman used, when clutches were mandatory. The rules now just say "self-starting" and few if any use clutches anymore. LPS Racers in Lebanon, PA makes a cast aluminum bell than is just big enough for the starter flex plate. Starters mount on the block at the stock location. There are some inboard starter systems available but I don’t think any sportsman use them.


This looks like an LPS bell here with the LPS Logo ground off LOL
