Default Need a Starter - can someone help identify it?

Happy Holidays everyone!

I have a pair of 330HP Mercruiser 454s both regular rotation, carbureted, and connected to borg warner 72s. No idea what year they are but for what it's worth they are just Chevy's right?

So I go to Car Parts place to get a replacement starter...without having the make, model, year they can't tell me what starter to buy. Can anyone on this Forum help a guy out with a model number so I can order it on-line?

FWIW worth, yes I upgraded batteries, cleaned all connections, and check solenoid. The thing is a rusty lump, clicks and tries to turn over the motor but cant seem to handle the effort....been getting worse over time and then just stopped spinning at all.

Many Thanks as always!

I believe my starter/alternator guy also said that it looks to be a marinized International Harvester starter.

Remember too that marine electrics (starter, alternator, distributor, etc) are marinized for spark elimination. Putting an automotive unit in is risking an explosion.
