10253 with all the bells and whistles. My last one lasted nearly 5 years before the Interstate battery finally crapped out.

Heavy buggers but most durable as well as reliable IMO.

I 2nd the part # 10253, and you will need a 12v battery.
This starter box will start any .21 up to .32 engine.

Yea. You might check with your local motorcycle shops, Walmart, or local auto parts stores for a good Lawn tractor/motorcycle type battery.
A cheap 12 volt trickle charger is all I use.

Initial charge for 24 hours, then run it till the built in voltage tester begins to dip into the red. Mine lasted for a week if I didn't let my buddies use it all the time but it easily last a couple days of regular use before requiring another 8 hour charge. There is a dry cell available now, but I imagine its spendy....

A lot harder to line up your flywheel with the wheel facing that way, that's for sure! Even if you moved it to the other slot, one would think it wouldn't line up well making it a chore to kick over.

Agreed.

I've had a few, and ultimately wound up with the chrome top one and a Hyper 8 Chassis Plate (Jig) from TKO racing.

I was worried that the FR2 Chassis wouldn't fit the older TKO jig, so I put it on last night - to my surprise, it seems to be a tighter/better fit than with the old stock H8 chassis.

In other words, the TKO chassis plate for the H8 works with the Hyper 8.5 (FR2) chassis!

Sirlink, you get what you pay for.... Those compacts use a single 750 or dual 550 electric motors which are very suseptable to overheating and/or frequent belt replacement.
