I was going to add a reply to njr682's post, but thought it might be better to open a new thread, as my problem involves a flexplate.

I am currently building up a 355, and the flexplate that the machine shop sold me is 14 1/8" dia. with 168 teeth. I have a starter that I was going to use that came off a 305, and it had a 12 7/8 dia. flexplate w/ 153 teeth. The mounting holes on the starter in question are directly across from each other (perpendicular to the eng C/L)and not on a diagnal.

I presume that this combination will not work, and that I'll have to get another starter. What exactly should I look for in terms of the mounting arrangement on a new starter? Straight across or diagnal mounts? The new motor looks like it will accept both.

Are the starter snouts/mounts the only difference?

Thanks in advance,
