  • Superior Design
  • Easy Installation
  • 1/3 Smaller Than Stock

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.

Worth every penny

Installed on 1996 F-250 PSD no problem. Well worth the money when the temperature is falling
Extremely satisfied

Installed on my 97 F-superduty that had been sitting for a week in close to freezing temps and truck fired up no problem on the first try. Price may scare some but well worth it in my opinion.
Extremely happy

I was skeptical of the price at first but bought anyways. My 2002 7.3 PSD had not been started in a month of freezing temps and 14 days of below zero temps prior receiving this starter. Installed this starter in 30 mins by my self and was very easy. I cycled glow plugs twice and started right in in 3 seconds. I've never heard the motor spin that fast in the middle of summer after driving. Extremely happy n pleased. Great Christmas present to myself

As promised. A video showing this starter in action on my cold cold truck. Enjoy.
I couldn't believe how fast the truck turned over!

Installed on my 99 Super Duty. Easy installation. Truck sat for 2 weeks in below freezing weather. This starter turns the engine over at an insane speed. The engine fired right away with only 10 seconds of glow plug use. I should have bought this years ago! No more cold start woes. 2 year warranty and made in USA seal the deal. I will follow up with another review in a few months.
