I just bought Hooker Super Comp 2243 Headers and I am getting ready to buy a starter.

It says you need the Power Master 9500 with a 168 tooth flywheel. My question is can you use another style mini starter like the Summit brand for about half the price?

I also used the powermaster, I just did not want to take a chance on the others not working. I'm sure if you check dimensions, the other mini starters would work.

Just be sure to get one that has a tapered gear on the bendix. I tried a Wyseco that had a flat gear, and it rubbed. Made a heckova noise, till I found out what it was. There is a starter out called a CVR out. My speed shop couldn't get Powermaster anymore. The CVR is supposed to be on par with the Tilton's.....bout $185.00, good heavy duty starter.

Why are you running a 168 tooth flexplate?

It does matter in an early car, I would never be able to run the big fly wheel with my setup, now with fender well headers this might be O K
The headers say that with the 168 flywheel the PM9500 will work. So I am guessing most mini starters will work.

I am getting ready to find out.:) I ordered a Summit brand mini starter. If it don't fit I will return it and get the PM9500.
