    10009 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install works great I had installed headers and factory starter would not clear. Received my JEGS mini torque starter and had plenty of header clearance. It was a very simple install and only required me because of the light weight. The torquey motor cranks with ease, great starter, especially for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter I purchased this starter to replace a name brand mini starter that I had problems with since new. My GM crate 350 starts great now and the price was less than the name brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It spins the engine quickly. Installation was simple. The unit is very compact and light-weight. I am impressed with how quickly it starts my high compression SBC. I don't know where it is manufactured, however. The sticker on the box said, "Made in ...... ." Country of origin was left blank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter This is the second one I've bought, the first one lasting many years. Once you get it shimmed and clocked right for header clearance, it really works well. The only issue I ran into on the first one was, the insulation on the solenoid to starter wire deteriorated early on. Great starter though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from JEGS mini starter. I bought this for a1964 Impala SS 327 I am building, everything worked out perfectly, no shims needed. This new starter is less than half the size and weight of the original, and it spins the new motor over no problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! I finally made the purchase of a mini starter after i couldn't start my car at a gas station due to heat soak issues. Ever since i installed it starts right up with no hesitation and i love it. No more embarrassing moments for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This starter is a little bigger then other mini starters just had to wiggle it just a little bit lol, with 355 chevy 10.5.1 compression it cranks the engine very easily. The price and shipping from Jets is second to none. Keep up the good work

    I have a 454 big block with a m22 rock crusher. How many shims, if any, should I use? The engine is still in the car.

    Asked by: Sarah21
    Each block is different, you will need to check the clearance when you install the starter. Many application do not need any shims.

    I recently installed this on my 1995 Chevy K2500 4X4 5spd manual Silverado. After installation it’s getting power, but it’s not making contact with the flywheel. Any recommendations on how to make this work with my truck?
