Couldnt get bell housing to fit , so I took down starter.. The $&*&^&^ thing can fall down, and rip wires off and break nose off... That 10.5 dust shield wont fit 11 inch bell..  I thought of cutting it in two, and bolting on the 2 pieces..  just leaves a little gap in middle...dont have pressure plate bolts, so  i will order them from Centreforce..

got the grade 8 bolts ,installed Carl1's thingie to guide it.. Installed pressure plate cover.. Was suprised ,that it had to pull in, to tighten..  been a long time since I installed one..  my torque wrench only dropped to 40 ft lbs, so I just pulled it real tight!  used loctite, and lock washers..Installed bell housing, and tightened  snug..  Starter wouldnt install, so I took it off.... Who put all this oil under the car?  got to get new pos.. cable..   Going to make a thing, to install on jack tomorrow..  want to install trans soon.   Do I take the pilot guide thingie out?biggrin

lol. rofl.gifrofl.gifrofl.gif

you need to use the starter with the bolt holes in line for the 168 tooth flywheel. (11")

your original with diagonal holes is for the 153 tooth, 10.5".

Thats better!    The starter on the right is off car and works well. the starter on the left, history is unknow to me. so I will change the nose cones...My friend ,who sells parts, wanted me to buy a small starter, but I am still un-employed, and need to save moneyhmm  As usual, you saved me money... I am going to save up ,and buy you a burger, at TOdd's BBQ biggrin

I wish you weren't in a hurry. I know of a yard that has some, but it's 3 hours away, and under snow.

I would strongly advise against cutting and welding. There is a lot of pressure on a fork, and unless it's well done, I would be scared of it breaking. Then you get to do it all over again.

My 2 cents, even though you didn't ask for it!

MUNCIE 4 SPEED


I am not in a rush, as the car, will be sitting when finished... I cant drive on my side lawn until end April  BUT BUT  If I dont get it done this next 2-3 weeks, it wont get done.. We have a wedding in APRIL (oldest daughter) a house to sell! ,some changes in our home situation , we have handicapped boys living with us, and when it gets warm, I have a room to rebuild on the side of our home, and a roof to replace over our patio deck, and that is why car has sat inside garage for TWO years....sooooo I have to get at it...My biggest challange to the clutch fork is loacating one.. the internet sites say BUY IT NOW for 65-70 b body and then list same for Nova / Chevelle... I wish I could go up town and order one.. price means nothing to me ,when I want it NOW..GOOD STORY eh? confused.gif: Postman
