I had the same problem. I installed a MSD Digital 6 and and to date have not had the problem again.

Hammertime, just wondering if your problem ever recurred or did the starter fix it permanently ? Mine appears to be doing the same thing while restarting.
It will spin like crazy until I hit the ignition switch then starts to drag.
(Also a Tilton starter)

Thanks

I've never had a problem sense, I had my tilton gone through again at local starter shop, put it back on and it works ok now, he changed a few things in there. I still say it dont work as good as my cheap starter I got from him.

Check for voltage drop first and once you rule out voltage is not a issue look at the starter.

Cool ! Thanks
I will check the voltage.
Do you still have a drop in voltage going back
To starter?
One last question, did you end up wiring in the
Starter saver too?

I do have voltage drop but not much. Your looking for a major drop while cranking, ign on and off back there. I ended up buying a digital ignition and pulling 8 degrees out also. Starter saver would work also, i've used them in the past.
