No way the stock starter would fit, so we again looked to the Jeepers and stole a ministarter idea from Powermaster. It uses the Hitachi silhouette design parameter, so it fits inside the headers if you remove them. The washers we used to set the lash on the ring gear turned out to be the same thickness as the transmission spacer, so we found one from another AMC engine and doubled them up. The starter makes 250 lb-ft of torque, which is likely more than the original six-cylinder engine did.
