Re: mini starter

does your ministarter have 2 sets of mount bolt holes?

Tom Terrific or Terrible Tom, depending on the phase of the moon, passing cosmic rays or other factors not fully understood except by my wife.

Re: mini starter

If you have a small block make sure the bolts are straight across not diagnal. The diagnal pattern will damage your teeth and make noise with any shimming. I got a summit mini and used it with stock 4spd bell housing and shatterproof steel housing as well as 700r4 and t350. Don't think it matters.

Re: mini starter

When I changed the TH350 to the tko in the 66, I used a Ground Up reproduction 621 bellhousing, I used a Summit brand staggered bolt mini starter, with a 168 tooth flywheel.

The stock starter nose would not clear the new bellhousing.
