Starter for Jetboat
I need to find a starter for my jetboat. Its a flywheel mount. The only number I can find is 5158.
BBC? BBF? Try summit, Jegs? Brand......Tilton? Good luck, sometimes better to rebuild.

It is a bellhousing mount for a big block chevy. This is the third time I have had it rebuilt. It burned out the armature. Rebuild shop can't find one.
I just went to autozone and bought one for a 78 2500 series puck up.
It might not be coast guard approved, but it. Works just fine.
