A modern replacement starter for use on petrol powered Series Land Rovers has been introduced by Global Roamer Corporation under the brand name STARTREX.

Global Roamer Corporation Developed in Canada, the starter is a direct replacement for the original equipment starter made by Lucas and fitted to all Series II, IIA and III Classic Land Rovers. The new starter is compact in design but develops more torque than the original. This starter has a built in solenoid and pre-engages on the front of the ring gear. As power consumption is considerably less than the old design, voltage drop during starting is reduced, giving a hotter spark and faster cranking in the coldest climates.
