Ran a search but nothing. Has anyone tried the "mean green" starter on a 2f and do you think it was worth the $. Also, is it correct that on the f mortor and 2f mortor the starters are swapable. Thanks for your input.

I doubt that you need the mean green. Seems like more dollars
than you need to spend. A good rebuilt stocker will last you.
Also, the new FJ60 gear reduction starters seem to be popular.
As far as I know, the F and 2F starters are completely swapable.

I bought a reman Toyota Gear Reduction starter and I'm amazed at the difference. Plus, it is Toyota reliable.

thanks for the info. Think I might go with the 60 gear reducton model.

a MG is no better(and maybe worse than) a OEM 81+ gear reduction starter, I have a MG(that I got for $100) on one of my 40's, works just fine, but its no improvment over the OEM GR unit.

and yes a OEM GR starter will fit cruisers at least as far back as 1964, I swaped one onto my 64 45LV, some minor wiring redo's but all of 5 mins to do.

I should have figured you'd have one Mark. Yeah, if you have a GR-starter pm me with a price. I can pick it up next time I'm at the shop.
