    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)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best starter for the money! I had a few different "high torque" starters on my car, but none would turn it (sbc with a blower). This starter does not hesitate! Great terminal placement and fast start! Plan to buy more in the future!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needed machining. In order to achieve the proper distance between the flexplate and the starter drive, I had to anti shim the nose piece. I machined .090" to make the gap correct. The thing works great. Just wish it was a bolt in.

    I installed this starter but the gear only protrudes halfway on the flywheel,is this normal? I have the round spacer off that goes between the housing and starter.

    Asked by: Jhol89
    No, you will want full engagement of the gear on the flywheel or flexplate. make the sure the flywheel of flexplate is installed correctly.

    Hello, My car has a third wire going to the solenoid that I believe provides power to the ignition coil during cranking. I do not see a prevision for that on my new ProStarter. How do I correct this? Thanks!
