Got a bad one on the F-450/Super Duty in my sig, just wondering what people have had luck with? I’ve read good things about DB Electrical, both on Amazon & eBay, like to hear people’s experiences.

Yes, I was hoping it was you that had one. Mine has the spur gear reduction, I’m surprised it’s not setting my cables on fire, it cranks fast & then slow when cold, hot it’s fine.

They are new china, not Mitsubishi like OE ones. They will not last as long as the OE one but are so much less expensive they are worth it unless it is a problem to change.

Well, I bit the bullet & ordered a CQ rebuilt Nippondenso variety, that way I get a lifetime warranty. The new Chineseum gear reduction ones all appear to be Denso clones anyway, and I've heard the Chinese ones don't last too long. New Denso ones seem to be in the $200 range, this reman (after discounts, RMN25 25% off, Speedperks, etc.) will be around $120.

NAPA professional series were fully rebuilt + although costlier were worth it!
