what brand of starter should I get
I just found my starters housing broken in two, so I need to get a new starter but were to start, no pun intended. O'reilly auto has a ultima starter for $60 or I could get a mean green starter from quadratec for $300. Is it really worth paying 5 times more than the one from o'reilly. Is the ultima starter any good? Couldn't find much about it on line.
I've stayed with NAPA.Buy it new,lifetime warranty,make sure it made in USA hopefully.Had really good luck with it. On my sandrail i bought a Checker lifetime starter,high quality.After a lifetime of changing it out i took it back and bit the dust for a $90 Napa one.That was 10 years ago and its still going after all the desert abuse.I'm sure there is a lot of great starters out there.This is just my opinion
Rockauto has an AC Delco rebuild for $40 - $50. Quality looks really good. (Just bought one for mine.) Completely tested after rebuild.

I have the oreilly lifetime starter on mine. I dont feel there is a need for the mean green unless you have a high compression engine or plan on having to do alot of bump starts in gear. I have always used them even on my demo derby cars and they take alot of abuse there.

I went with the o'reilly one because of warrenty, I really didn't want to buy from them because they couldn't answer any of my questions, not even where it's made. I haven't paid for it yet, I think I will check with Napa, thanks for the info.
I use a rebuilt ac delco, havent had a problem yet.
