    Exclamation Starter Motor

    Looking for a replacement starter motor for my 6.3L V8 383 stroker Chevy. There are no markings on it. Any recommendations on what will work?

    Have a search on here for some ideas, bit of a sweet shop really:

    I think you need to check no. of teeth on your flywheel (if you’re using one).

    Most people fit high torque (geared) mini starters. You'll find by far the best prices on these from Russ at R&R Hotrod Imports - see here.

    I've dealt with Russ for quite a few years - a very helpful guy. He can now get anything from Summit Racing within a week or so.

    Thanks Alan, had yet to find Russ. That starter works with either 153 or 168 tooth flywheel

    Just had a new ring gear and starter motor fitted, it took the max amount of shims to get the position right, seems fine now. Bought mine from Real Steel, pricier than Conrods supplier though.

    I took mine to a starter motor repair man who completely rebuilt and beefed up the inards. Hasn’t missed a beat since. £50!
