First I appologize for this question being low tech but I dont know where else to ask.
I am about done with rebuilding my engine/boat and was about to do the electrical system and wanted to know about top mount starters. My bell housing has a mount for one but all I have ever used were the standard automotive style. My reasons for wanting one would be better access and it seems that it would raise all of the wires in my boat above the bilge. They seem more expensive but...its a boat. My motor is a 509 bbc with a flywheel and an American Turbine Jet. with the bottom mounts I know that there are two mounting positions and that covers everything. Is getting a top mount worth it. What do I need and what do you guys run?
