will it spin it when it is super hot? You can buy a used 88-91 vette gear reduction starter for 50.00
A hot engine turns over easier than a cold one.

I meant a heat soaked starter, there is a pretty good reason why chevy guys like these starters verses there originals.

I bought a $180 starter back in 2005 or so, after very little use I realized it won't fit the later block and flywheel on my 383....
then I bought a cheap mini starter from Whiteperformance and that $80 starter works great since 2007 - I use a heat shield blanket to keep it somewhat cool.
That reminds me, I have to see where that other starter is and put it up for sale...

I bought a Tilton style high torque mini starter when I had my engine built. I have had experience with heat soaked starters in the past and wanted to avoid going there again. The mini starter has worked great.

that starter looks like a knockoff of this one....I had the nose changed to use on my vintage racer with a 153t flexplate but never did. $100 owns mine (genuine GM and only started my racer two times, I switched to a reverse drive starter and 5.5" clutch)

Will that starter fit a early SBC?? if so it would be a decent upgrade to the camper, that hates to crank over in summer heat when engine is hot...
