The new Mean Green gear-reduction starter next to the stock unit. Even though it produces far more starting power and torque than the stocker does, it isn't overly bulky. As a matter of fact, ours bolted right in without any modifications to the truck. Ford, AMC/Jeep, and Toyota starters can be rotated in 20-degree increments for better header clearance if needed. GM starters have dual bolt patterns for both the 153- and 168-tooth flywheels. MG Industries also manufactures starters for a wide variety of vehicles in both gasoline and diesel applications.
