    Prostarter Starters use ball bearings instead of bushings that can wear prematurely. While other vehicle starters offer 3:1 gear reduction, JEGS Prostarters have a Nippondenso motor with a 4.4:1 ratio and cranking power for engines with as much as 12.5:1 compression.


    • Lightweight
    • Amp Draw: 80 to 90
    • Solenoid housings sealed with O-rings for added protection
    • Full ball bearing construction (instead of bushings) for lasting performance
    • Billet aluminum adapters with 4 adjustable mounting positions for more oil pan or header clearance (except 555-10081 and 555-10085)
