    Is there a good way to differentiate the different starters for the early olds engines? I have an early 303, but I have a 54 slant pan Hydro with the 176 tooth ring gear. From the research I have done (yes, Ive used the search feature) I think I need a 54-56 starter. I did run across a post with a page showing some parts numbers which should be on a riveted tag, but what if the starter has no tag anymore?
    So I guess I have two questions. One, am I correct in which starter I need. And two, what are the features to look for so I get the right one?

    Yes, I know I can get a new mini starter from Ross, but for now I think I would like to try and find an original one. Thanks.
  2. Tony at Ross will answer all your questions. Give him a call. You will need the later starter as far as I know.
