Hi All changed bat. cables to heavier guage now want to get a mini high torq starter for 85 rc 360 .There is starters on e bay from china that look cheap any ideas where i can get a oem one used or rebuilt to solve heat soak .
Don't buy "new" parts from Ebay unless you are totally ok with the idea that probably 1 in 5 is going to come to you "dead on arrival" or die shortly thereafter and you have absolutely no way of getting your money back or a decent replacement.
You can get several brand name starters from Rockauto, new and reman, that have a much higher chance of being a good, usable part and last a long time. Just look one up for a '88-'93 truck with a V8 and you are good to go.
Yeah I guess I will have to look at the starter closely the next time I have to buy one. I have the big boy starter on a 400 engine in a 1986 w250. Some of the pictures of the mini-starters show the terminals almost being on the block side of the starter.
there was a couple different sizes made between 88-93 but any of the newer ones are way smaller than the old ones. here is a pic i took when i upgraded my 81. one starter is the original off my 81 and the other is a 89 and 91
