I have a Mean Green starter (MG 4162) for my 1972 Scout with a 345. I believe it will work for 71-80 Scouts. If you want to buy it, I would call Mean Green to double check, though.
The starter had a wiring problem when it was received and then was sent back to Mean Green. In the meantime they sent another starter, and then sent the original back after fixing the problem. They told me to just keep both. I don't need two starters, so the one they fixed is up for grabs. New from Mean Green (and with a two-week turnover) is $359.
Buy this one for $300, free shipping to continental US.
