Don't bother with the B&C go to the people that make the original
equipment starters (Electrosystems) and buy their MagnaFlite light
weight starter, very light and about 65% more powerful than the original
starter.  You can get them from Chief for about $350 with a 2 year
unlimited hour warranty.
These are very well made, and allow you to put the starter starter relay
where it belongs close to the battery so you don't have that long heavy
hot cable just waiting for a short.
