    I think Mr. Morse basically covered it.

    I am not familiar with the Ford Escort starters; only those Ford starters that were used long ago with external solenoids.

    Having the battery in the boot is good on many standpoints (cooler place for the battery, better weight and balance) but it is lousy for power transmission; you need very thick cables running from the boot to the engine compartment.

    I think the other end from the boot is the bonnet.[​IMG]
    ...not that it is of any importance.
