replacment starter for V8 110

Need a quick replacement starter motor for an 1985 V8 110 pretty sure they are all the same ( Rover V8's) just not positive have not replaced one in years. Any one know of a source ? It's in Hamden CT USA or is there a cross reference to other starters that will fit ?
Thanks in advance

Paul Grant is up in CT.
He is probably tripping over used starters available for reasonable prices...

Early V8 Defenders with a ballast resistor in the ignition circuit had an extra terminal on the starter solinoid. The purpose of this is to send full 12v to the coil during cranking and 6v while running. I bought a "generic" new starter for my '85 110 and found out the hard way that this extra terminal was needed for my truck as it would only run while cranking. Luckly the solinoid on the new starter had the connection for the run terminal but it had just been cut off during assembly at the factory. I was able to solder on a replacement spade terminal and was good to go. Moral of the story is if you have a ballast resistor, make sure your new starter has the connection needed (or replace the coil, rewire etc).

Chris it looks like to me that you should be able to use the later style with no problem. The small brass knob in the top of your photo is where the second terminal is on my starter.

Doug I'm running a rebuilt points distributor that has been converted to electronic ignition, Petronix if I remember right. Has been trouble free...uh oh...now I've done it!

Ok got the replacement starter and fist notice the top hole was threaded ( figure if it would brake my stones I would drill it flat ( like the stock Lucas unit) then I notice the bolt holes were larger than I remember the stock ones being.( figured easier to line up bolts... So went out in the cold dark night ( snow storm coming in today at noon) and I could not get the starter to seat properly like an 1/8 " from seating flush against the housing . anyone else run into this . It is supposed to be a bosh starter the old one was a lucas but I thought they were all universal
