rarely in life do you meet a person that will drop everything to help a stranger,
and give the shirt off his back to a friend.
Steve Price was that kind of person.
Godspeed "window licker", the short bus will never be the same with you gone.
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.
