Have questions regarding the starter i would need to use with my 351w swap.
Im going to be running the 157 tooth 10.5 clutch. Im assuming the original from the 300 I6 aint gona work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Do you guys like pictures? lol.
Ill work on getting some up
Heres the 351 I built
I have Windsor in my 79 f150. It's been a while since I bought the starter. I think I used a 302 starter.
I know there are 2 different tooth count flywheels, the 157 and I think a 128.
If the 300 had 157 teeth, I think it will work.
There is also a difference with the starter hole diameter on the bell housing dust shield. The thin plate between the motor and bell.
The flywheel i have is smaller than the original 6 cylinders by like 3/4"
So im sure the starter wont grab. Im wondering what starter would work in the smallblock bellhousing that would grab the 157 tooth 10.5 flywheel?
After read your last post I was thinking same as Big. Block said. All the starters I've seen always have the same size drive gear. It not like I've seen large starter gears and smaller ones. The started must just be farther from the center of the crank for a larger ring gear.
Which means the ring gear has to be matched up with the right bell housing.
