i have found that the original starter with my engine
is best one ever. the replacement doesnot fit right. the old one, written off in usa was easily rebuilt in less than a day in puerto vallarta
and works just fine n dandy.not even rusty anymore after rebuild
. imagine that.
so now i have 2 starters, important in cruising, one that fits without shims and one that fits using special mounting brackets and shims. i prefer the shim free version. burlier and more reliable.
