    Never had a problem with a stock chevy starter (with headers)in 8 years and plenty of 90+ degrees weather.

    The one on the elky is a GM one intended for a late Corvette. About 80 off ebay new.

    Which mini starter do you use Briz, there seems to be a lot of options out there and a big price difference
    I'm pretty sure my engine isn't anything special so do i really need a 260 starter???? but i don't wanna be left by the AA for 7hrs 50 mile from home with my 15 month son

    Any advice from anyone would help, just wanna know which starter to go for???

    You dont need to. If the old starter had a straight-across bolt pattern, its a 154T and if the bolts are staggered its a 168T

    Anyone got a easy way of counting the teeth on flex plate while still fitted to car????

    I would steer clear of cheap ministarters. I've used Powermasters with great results.

    Took it off this evening and it seems buggered but it is a staggered bolt hole mount one, but there is a threaded hole in line as well in the block???
    Does this mean it will take both sorts of starters????

    I got a mini hi torque starter from kerry at originals 100.00 inc postage. Did have to modify it, as per another thread on here shim it back slightly. he will need to know if its a striaght hole or staggered.

    it is a lot better, chevys do suffer from heatsoak.
