  • This starter has three mounting holes. Some applications will only use two of the three holes.
  • This starter has a register diameter of 4.083" and is designed for ring gears that are 3/4" from the starter mounting surface.
  • This starter is 7-11/16" long from the mounting surface to the end of the motor.
  • The solenoid can be rotated to any position without taking the starter apart. We recommend positioning the solenoid under the starter motor and towards the oil pan. This makes it easier to connect the battery cable and keeps the solenoid away from exhaust heat.
