In need of a new starter and looking for whats the current go to for a 168 flywheel. 582 BBC. Not really looking to change flywheel as I have 3 cars and like to have all things interchangeable.
The market provides a number of units that will give good service. The last several I bought from House of Payne, an excellent product and top shelf personal service.

If you're lucky you might find one at a big box outlet that will come with a steel nose.

Since 2020 I run House of Payne starters in both cars for 139 tooth flexplates. Prior to that Tilton Super Starter for 3 decades. Regardless of which starter you chose, I recommend having a spare pinion assembly especially with a high compression BBC

I got um all I’d take the new CSR as of right now against um all…it’s $600 though
PowerMaster 9540, just as good if not better than all those high dollar ones!
You cant go wrong with either HOP or Meziere if your budget allows.
Ive spent a load of money on meziere’s stuff and
not had any luck with none of it….

I think the Powermaster is as good as any of them.
More important is the 139 tooth flexplate, they last so much better. I went to 139 tooth in 2012 and that flexplate is still in the car and going good with new owner.

Who makes the PowerMaster starters? I have heard of them but no experience with them. Reviews for their products are good and prices seem on the lower side compared to the others mentioned here.
I've had very good luck with the powermaster 9450 it also comes in 139t. I have it in all three of my cars.
Powermaster here as well, only issues were caused by me.....with Ed on this one too, keep spare pinion with you. I killed one due to issues other than starter, but the pinion took the beating.. starter is fine and works great though....

Powermaster here also ....
IMI 902 Has worked well. From Good vibrations.
For everyone running the HOP starters for 168, do you run the Premium Starter or the Premium Super Duty?
I use Meziere on both of my cars and I also have a spare just in case, however, I feel I will never need to replace any parts or even one of these starters in my lifetime. I'm sure there are other quality starters out there, but I can vouch for Meziere. I also just had my flexplate recerted by them and they were extremely nice on the phone and very quick turn around.
I use HOP Premium Starter with 14-1 sbc. Using 12v and spins faster than the ECAE it replaced.
