Got tired of playing "Ring Gear Roulette" with teh B, didn't fancy pulling it apart for a replacement so put a WOSP starter in a couple years ago. Works fine. As for expense, even teh Moss unit wuz still less time/effort/money than teh job of pulling engine/trans, AFAIC.

I put one in a couple of years ago and heave never regretted it. Like doc I got tired of pulling and reinstalling teh original boat anchor starter. I paid $230 for mine. As youz can see flum teh pic teh new starter has multiple mounting holes to allow for teh perfect fit. As a bonus it’s smaller and lighter.

Yes, please! Gear and weight reduction with reliability. Sourced mine here for under $200 a few years ago now. > Austin Healey 100, 100/6, 3000 - High Torque Starter <
I'd guess teh gear reduction unit weighs apout HALF twat teh original does. Only "risk" with teh new motor is teh position of teh hot lead. Make shur to put teh supplied rubber boot over teh connection. pon teh B engine, teh distributor cap clip can inadvertently drop down and contact teh connection. nut shur apout teh 1500, butt a consideration.
