Mini strater for 400sbc with headers

I need a smaller stagger bolt 168 tooth flywheel starter motor to go in my 72 chevelle 400sbc with headers.

I have found that for the price and reliability the Powermaster XS from Summit is the way to go.

I can't find any documentation on the size of this starter, all the pic I see look like it is smaller that a stock one, but I don't know.

So if anyone can tell me the size and how well it worked for them in a tight area I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
406chevelle

I have a powermaster starter from summit #PWM-9000,
and it works great on my 350sb , its about half the size of a OEM starter and weighs about 10pds.
i have used it for about 2 years now with no problems.

You might check your local starter/alternator shop. I am using a late model starter from a vortec that has the old style gear installed. The local shop here sells them for $80 or so with warranty. Mine works great.

Thanks for the replies guys.

The best I can do the local starter/alternator shops is $159 for a rebuilt AC Delco starter, I figured I would be better off buying a brand new one in the $200-$250 range.

I know that some of the newer stock replacement starters will work with my 400sbc but I can't find out which ones, and of coarse the all the auto part stores will only tell me what is listed for my car, very frustrating.

I will continue to find a starter that will work for me, I don't need the power that the Powermaster XS has but it is the cheapest one I can find that will work, seen quite a few cheaper ones on Ebay but am afraid of Ebay...LOL

Hey 406, I have brand new ones just like the pic you showed, and I put one on mine also, if interested e-mail me kitch7@htdconnect.com. Your price would be $100.00, this would include freight (ups). Yes they are brand new, thanks
