Re: replacement starter...which one?
there is no heavy duty AMC starter that Im aware off, except for a gear type mini starter which I think is the Mean green you spoke of ( over $200 Ithink)
all 290,304,340,360,390,401 use the same starter its a FORD starter with a slightly differnt nozzle on it,up until the mid 80s when the Fullsized Jeeps started using a Motorola starter, Ive never used the motorola, so i cant say, but the earloier Ford types are like $30 for a lifetime warrenty, and Ive gone thru a few, they seem to last a couple of years if you dont soak them in oil too much, they dont seem to have any trouble turning my 360 over, and I think it has slightly higher than stock compression.
