Mini Starter....

Does anyone have a GOOD used mini starter for a BBF? Or if not, how about a toasted one that I can use for mock-up? Thanks....

Yes it is. There are several people on this forum running those starters.

Thanks for the input guys! That's why I love this site! And thanks to everyone who PM'd me! Here's what I'm up against.....Any guesses as to weather the DB starter will fit or not? How about a gear reducted one? Or one that can be re-clocked?



It DEFINATELY must hug the block but there's room on the flange....as long as it's not too thick.

Rob,

If you are going to run a blower, why not start it with the blower?

PM me and I'll show you the mini starter I have here, it might work.
