This is what I've got on the Camaro. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CHEVY-SB ... 414954389a

And I got one of these on the engine in the Studebaker. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SBC-BBC- ... 2c5142cbe0

Had zero problems with either of'em and would buy another one if I needed one.

Thanks for the replies guys
One of the parts on Ebay is just close to me
I would prefer to buy USA made but sometimes $$$ are in short supply
also i had been put off powermaster by the number of people including my engine shop that said recently they had a lot of problems .

And another thing to consider here is that alot of those mini starters are actually foreign made starters adapted to work on an SBC and marketed by US companies so the "made in the USA" thingie may be moot point. All I know is mine work and they were cheap. ;-)

No matter what starter you get, use a QUALITY, USA made flexplate. JW Wheel is a quality part, and is what I use. The cheap ones are not always round, or even worse like this one.

I've used the CVR's on several with on issues.Its a nipp denso style starter and is factory on alot of dodges and imports.Only thing I've ever seen wear out on them is the plunger and contacts.Which I have about 20 diff sets(plunger lenghts and size contacts) at work.I've honsetly never replaced a starter like those on a customer car. Always just repaired them.Saves the customer alittle money to boot.Diff be up to trying a Fleabayer at those prices though. =;
