Starter motor question; for 153 tooth, manual.


I know it's been gone over before, but will all straight across bolt pattern starter motors work on a 153 tooth manual flywheel?

More importantly, will the straight across style fit in the smaller bellhousing? Specifically a GM 3840383.

Above all, do I need a straight across pattern starter with a specific nose style?

Thanks, Mark

I'm quite sure you have exactly what you need there Mark. I am currently running my original bellhousing with the 283 (same as 6 cylinder) starter with the straight across bolts. That is the only starter that works with that flywheel as far as stock starters go.

This is good, as the old 250 has a straight across style starter in good working order. I was worried that only a Iron nose starter would work/fit. Thanks Carl.

No problem.

The beauty of GM and it's interchange. You can pull out a 194 and drop in a 427 using the 194 starter and flywheel/flexplate on the 427! All interchanges except 292, 400 small block and 454. And of course the 86 and up with the one piece rear seal use different flywheels/flexplates.

4speed427, do you think the 9 1/2 clutch from the 194 would live behind a big block?
But on the serious side there are some small blocks not drilled to take the starter for the large flywheel. A friend years ago put a manual in his car and used a truck flywheel and truck aluminum bell housing. The last thing was the starter and he found that he only had one bolt hole. Ended up using a cast iron truck bell and the starter that bolts to the bell housing.

It might last for until the first clutch dump at 4000 rpm!

What engine was that on? I have heard guys talk about that but I guess never really paid attention to whether or not a block had it.

If I recall it was a 1964 283 that was lacking the hole in the block.

Ah, ok. Most of the stuff I've played with has been 66 and up, some 65 though too.

That would make sense as the turbo 400 used the large flywheel if I recall.

Yes, always as far as I've ever seen.

Any big block, any TH400 should always be the 168 tooth.
