The Mean Green Gear Reduction Starter is the answer to all of your starter problems. The Mean Green Starter provides 100% more torque than an overweight stock starter. With a 4.4 to 1 gear reduction, roller bearing support, and an integrated solenoid, the Mean Green Starter can crank any engine no matter how high its static compression.
  • Superior Design
  • Easy Installation
  • 1/3 Smaller Than Stock
  • 100% More Cranking Power
  • 300,000 Mile Life Expectancy
  • No More Hot Start Problems
  • 2 Year Unconditional Guarantee
  • No Core Required
The Mean Green Starter's 3" tool steel driveshaft is supported at both ends by bearings. The stainless steel pinion shaft is externally splined to mate with the larger diameter, internally splined driveshaft. Even the armature in the high-speed motor is supported at each end with bearings. All totaled, there are five bearings in the motor and gear assembly. That's one reason we include a 2-year Warranty at no charge on every starter, (Commercial and Racing applications carry a 1-year warranty). Another is the heat resistant, integrated solenoid which continues to operate even at extreme temperatures.

Mean Green Starter's are compact in design to provide additional oil pan and header clearance. The starters for Ford and AMC/Jeep applications can be rotated in 20' increments to allow for better header clearance. The GM starters have dual bolt patterns for both the 12 3/4" (153 tooth) and 14" (168 tooth) flywheels.

Fantastic so far!
(Milwaukee, WI) | March 18th, 2019
Replaced my worn out starter on my 6.5 diesel with this and all I can say is wow. Cranks 10x faster than an OEM starter. Was like 45* granted but never did my factory starter even at this temperature turn the engine over so fast! Started the truck like it's never started today at 20* F. So happy I got this .
