    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. Using on a sbc 350. Remaned starter from another company wouldn't start on regular basis with a new optima battery. Installed this starter, now it cranks over effortlessly and fires right up. Only complaint is the bendix didn't want to engage a few times early on. Seems to be working fine now. It's been a month and it still going strong, time will tell. Definitely happy so far from the other starter.
