There is even one that has 3 bolt holes.......they are a truck starter, extra heavy duty if you can find one.

blocks

The older 400 sb also uses the staggered bolt pattern. I had to drill and tap a new hole for my mini-starter.

The staggered bolt pattern starter is used with a 168 tooth flywheel. The straight bolt pattern starter is used with a 153 tooth flywheel. Both of these starters have an aluminum nose. There are 2 starters with 3 bolt holes and they both have a cast iron nose. One is designed to bolt to the block and the other to the bell housing. Depending on the year of your boat, it could have either the cast iron or aluminum nose starter on it. It is very important to use a marine specific starter as these are built to U.S. Coast Guard specs to retain any sparks that may cause an explosion in the enclosed environment of a bilge.

I hope this helps
