I've been noticing for a couple of weeks that my wee beastie is turning over slower and slower. Might be the battery but I suspect it is the starter (grounds are good). Here's the thing, if I have to replace the starter (SN95 302), should I just go ahead and get another stock unit or should I upgrade to something lighter and stronger? I'd also like to not have to reinvent the wheel when wiring the new starter. Do the any of the aftermarket starters have the same wire hookups? Your thoughts are appreciated.

Frank, if the stock starter has been working fine for you for a fairly long time, why go with something else? The advantages of stick with stock are, no wiring, flywheel or local availability issues to deal with.

Bill, that's what I was thinking myself but I'm gonna give Mr. Alternator a call and see if his mini or racing starter is a direct replacement. I sure don't want to start with flywheel fitment or wiring problems.
