    Red face quality not price matters to me

    it is the same STYLE,i looked at several manufactures before finding the quality of the units i sell.OEM parts are pretty hard to beat in quality.i know nothing about what others sell.mine have been tested by members of the board for many years in some very extreme situations as you could see by the responses in this thread btw,my starters have a retail list price of over $300,& yes,some shops actually sell them for that.so i guess mines a bargain if you look at it from my standpoint

    Question high output alternator

    Jamie,
    Would you be able to make a high output (140A or so) internally regulated alternator for a 77 VW transporter? The one you made for me for the Buick works great and I'd like to have the same type of setup (ie-simple) on the VW. Please let me know as soon as you can! If you need a core to modify, I think I could provide one.
    -Romy

    Current:
    70 LeSabre 455 4 door hardtop (never ending project, but finally painted!)
    70 LeSabre Custom 2 door hardtop (getting painted)
    70 Baja Bug
    72 VW Westy / Adventurewagen
    77 VW Riviera Camper
    83 Suzuki FA-50
    85 Suzuki GS700E (basically a parts bike)
    02 Subaru Outback Wagon (daily)

    Past:
    70 LeSabre Custom 4 door hardtop (combined/parted into 2dr)

    My 70 LeSabre project page Hasn't been updated in a while since my cars are in IL and I'm in CA

    Hey Jamie,I just installed my new starter Sat. afternoon and can't tell you how pleased I am.The car had been sitting for almost 2 months and with the new starter it carnked over after only a couple tries.That thing is fast! Also,anyone else notice how quiet these things are compared to a stock style starter?Nice....Thanks again for a great product Jamie !!!

    Jamie is it possible to get the aluminum housing for the starter replaced?

    I got my starter from you about 4 years ago and it has been great. The advance in my distributor broke in the fall and I locked it at 34 deg. I had no trouble with it then but I went to move the car to work on putting in the new distributor and with the cold weather the motor kicked back and broke the housing.

    If I cant get the housing I will be ordering a new starter from you soon.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Jamie I checked the nylon gear and everything looks fine.

    How much is the housing and is it worth it to just replace the housing or would I be better off just getting a new starter?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Jamie,

    I am going to try to get a money order out to you this week for the housing. I am going to North Dakota for work and it depends on if my wife can get it and mail it for me this week. If not I will send it next week for sure.

    Thanks,

    Jamie,

    Just wanted to say thanks. I got my housing and put my starter back together and I am back in business. Sounds like a brand new starter.

    Thanks

    Jamie,
    You've got to go into your sent folder in your PM box and clear it too. There's a drop-down menu that should get you there.
