my starter blew and I got a starter at a boat store for 200 bucks it look like what I took out. but it made a grinding noise when I started the engine. some one said to buy a Yanmar starter, I called the Yanmar dealer and she said she had 16 starters that would fit my engine. I told her to order one. she called back and said only one starter would fit my engine but it cost 500 bucks.
I thought what a rip but I ordered it anyway. what I took out was about 6 inches long and 3 inches in dia. the Yanmar was 10 inches long and 6 inches in dia. and it had a cone around the Bendix drive. it was a pain but I got it in and the engine starts beautifully. money well spent
