    Chevy Starters

    Manufacturer's Part Number:

    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 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.

    Asked by: Dorran
    Yes, if your 400 is like most of them and takes a staggered starter this one will fit.
