    Yes, I have one for years, never a problem. I highly recommend them. looks like Jamie hasn't been on since 3-20-12. He might be away or on vacation.

    I don't have one, but it seems anytime someone says they need a new starter, or are looking to shave a couple pounds someone suggests these starters.

    it's on my list of future purchases

    I was thinking that as well I'm not in a HUGE hurry... I'll just give him some time. Hopefully he is off somewhere on a scenic road driving his buick.

    Thanks Jamie, I received the starter today and installed it this evening. This thing is awesome! The 455 cranks like a brand new car. It came in especially handy today since last night the casing on my OEM starter cracked...

    I highly recommend these, you'll be pleased!! This thing cranks FAST, header heat is not a problem, and it weighs a lot less.

    Just got mine installed, ran the car hard to 205 degrees, shut it down, hit the key, spins like a top! NEVER could have done that before!

    THANKS!

    P.S. This is my first mini starter and when I pulled it out of the box I thought "no way can this little thing turn that big ol' engine". So don't freak out when you see how small it is.

    Can I get a couple of replacement snouts and a couple of extra sets of bolts. Do the snouts come with the bearing? Sometimes I get a little kickback and thats all she wrote. Need the parts for spares in the trailer.
    Thanks Rick

    Hi Jamie, I think I need one of your starters, I am slowly baking the stock starter on my 350, the headers basically are almost touching it, and the wrap I put on it isn't helping. What would the shipping cost be to 11 Muir crst,Alma ,Ont. Canada . N0B 1A0. Cheers Curtis Litzen
