It might fit the holes but that looks to be a direct drive starter. Most of the Fords use a gear reduction starter, either inline or offset that are much much smaller to fit in the cramped space. Outside of DB, find a local alternator/starter shop, usually you'll get a good price and often 1 hour turnaround if you need a rebuild.
