After discussing it with Chuck Hill, I bought the larger starter used on the 426 Hemi’s. Makes a huge diffference.

When I restored my H, I had the original starter rebuilt at a reputable shop in Florence, SC. The third time I fired it up, the starter quit. So, instead of spending more money on another rebuild (without a warranty), I went to Auto Zone and bought a "Lifetime Warranty" starter. Thirteen years and 17,000 miles later it's still performing as it did when I first installed it. Just sayin'.

Subject: RE: [Chrysler300] 300G Starter
The starter shouldn't be too difficult to find, as it was used over many years on many vehicles. Having written that, I would first consider having my original rebuilt, if you still have it. There is one issue worth mentioning, that is there were at least two, if not three field windings available for the starter. You want the heavy duty winding installed, as it provides the most torque for overcoming "heat soak", hard turnover, after the car is run and turned off then restarted.. I fought with the problem for several years until my rebuilder told me I had the light duty winding in it. He sourced and installed the heavy winding and I haven't had an issue with hard turnover since. Check for local rebuilders, they may also have the starter if you don't have one.
Does anyone have a bead on a starter for a 300G?
