    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid starter Bought this a few weeks ago due to starter problems with a stock unit. Nice starter. Looks solid, bolts up nice and no problems spinning the engine over. Fit in nice behind the headers with plenty of room. I would definitely purchase this again and would recommend to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very small with a lot of torque I bought this for my 66 Impala, The starter that was on it was a some timer, This rolls the engine over and so far has started it every time, with ease.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adjustability! We run LT1 manifolds on our Hobby Stock and needed a starter that we could rotate the solenoid away from the exhaust. This starter worked perfect with its 12-position option.

    I have a 350ci in a 55 Chevy.  The starter bolts horizontally not vertical.   Do you offer a mini starter that will bolt horizontal?  It appears all the "mini" starter only bolt horizontal.

    Asked by: Dennis66
    Most small block Chevy engines use this starter pattern. There were a few that used this style starter - https://www.jegs.com/i/Tuff-Stuff/908/3686B/10002/-1

    Asked by: Anonymous
    This starter should fit your Corvette and is "clockable" so that you can rotate the motor and solenoid for clearance.
