Default Comparing Starter 1107355 versus 1108353

Curious if anyone knows the main difference between the 2 starters other than the 1108353 is a RAIII.

I need something to replace my missing 1108353 starter and donít think Iím finding one so thought about a standard 1107353 and wanted to know main differences and if there is any issues running a 335 on a RAIII motor.

Car is a 69 Judge

Thise starters have been high for a few years now. No different than the 4500 273 carb that everyone needs too.

All 3 are high torque so it would probably work fine.

looks like the 335 isn't up there anymore so both are high torque

Since they are both high torque then I would assume the RAIII has a higher torque value than a standard.

Money is a secondary issue to deal with, finding a correctly or close dated 69 8353 is the first hurdle, never seen a 69 for sale yet.

Yea, any Good condition PMD Hi-TQ Starter is going to play very well with your 400.

I have an unstamped GM Hi-TQ starter (of that era) laying around. DROOL. Gimmie big bucks.


That is why i have little respect for stampings adding value to Production parts. Carbs, Dizzys, Starters.

MOTORs repair manual dated 1970 has a very fine list of PMD Starter Stampings, and their Specs.
