hey robert - there are two flywheels 153 and 168 tooth. The 153 tooth flywheel uses the straight across bolt hole's in the block and starter, the 168 tooth flywheel requires the use of a starter with the diagonal bolt pattern...hope this helps. There is a difference in nose cone with manual or automatic as well! nick

Thanks for the reply Nick.That info is helpfull,I do have the corect starter as far as the bolt pattern goes.I'm hooking it up to a 400 automatic trans.I'm just trying to make sure I have the right starter as far as thickness of the gear on the starter goes.I dont know if that verries.

Everyone must really think I'm nuts.I got a new starter,not actualy new but rebuilt,just like the other one.I droped the first one and a piece of plastic broke off.This time I also put on the bracket that holds the front to the block.I had to order that since I did'nt have one.I hope that helps.I'll find out when I turn the key.

sometimes you need to put a shim between the starter and block to get things to mesh correctly.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Thanks for the reply and tip.I thought a shim would take the starter further away from the flywheel. [img]graemlins/waving.gif[/img]

If you use the same size shim on both bolts then yes it brings it away, but a single shim on one or the other bolt can cause the starter to engage properly with the flywheel.

Hey Brian,thanks for the reply and info.How do I know if I need a shim or not,other than the starter making a wineing sound or not.No,mine isn't making a noise,I have'nt turned the key yet. [img]graemlins/waving.gif[/img]
