If you own a high-performance engine don't overlook a starter that struggles to turn over. The intense engine compression ratio of high-performance cars can burn out traditional OEM starters that are unable to get a car or truck pistons to move up and down fast enough. Adding a high torque starter and ignition system can add the extra cranking power a high-performance vehicle needs.
In addition, high-performance engines take up more space creating less room for the starter. High torque starters are lighter and smaller than an OEM starter to provide increased ground, oil pan, and header clearance. Turn over your engine reliably in the driveway or on the track and let Gates Repair & Machine install a new high-amp battery and high-torque mini starter today.
If you are restoring an older muscle car, Gates Repair & Machine can help you keep the power flowing by adding state of the art digital ignition controls, a performance distributor, and low-resistance ignition wires. Rely on the mechanics at Gates Repair & Machine to revitalize your older car's starter and ignition system with a new wiring harness, distributor cap, rotor and spark plugs. Stop by our auto repair shop in Barry and discuss your restoration today.

My husband and I were in Barry for the fall color drive when our wheel baring on our truck broke. Being an hour and a half from home we had no idea what to do so we stopped at the local Ford dealer who called Rob to see if he could help. Rob was closed as it was a Saturday but by the grace of God he and his wife were at their shop having a garage sale. He certainly could have said no but instead opened his shop and repaired our truck for us. Wonderful wonderful people!!
