Re: how do you measure a starter

Any starter I've measured has been from the surface that contacts the bellhousing to the nose that the shaft goes thru. I think it would depend on what the seller specs tho, overall length maybe?......Mike

I would think housing length would be from contact to engine to end,where power hooks up.Gotto ask--why would you need such measurement?

I'd measure the length of the round tube-like part of the starter, the black painted section, between the end pieces.
