ask them to seal it when they build it or you..they are a few towns over from me and i go their to pick up starters for the race car when needed..heck they even said they can rebuild my tilton starters for 125.00 each..(racers net)you will need to shim the bendex gear properly or you will brake teeth off..mine came with a pin gauge and the shims and hardened bolts..

It may sound silly but I haven't looked to see what the factory starters are on my HO's, but they don't sound like the truck version. If you were willing to use as non-marine starter, I have had GREAT luck with 04-up 8100 starter. Used it on my 16:1 522 in my mud racer, never a whimper in that slop for the 6 years I was into that.

They donít claim itís a marine starter, but it is sealed, so no worries.

Hands down the best starter right here, we had quite a few boats, some blower motor, some N/A and we could not keep starters in them. These Hitachi Starters are KILLER and very low profile and can honestly say we have not had any issues with these.

I found a 3hp, 4 gear reduction mini starter works good for my 496 stroker
