Inline Starter

Hello everyone. My starter on my 68 327 engine crapped out on me yesterday, so I ended up having to get a new one. But, waite that was the good news. The bad news is that the rear bolt broke off in the block. After spending a few hours after work today trying to drill and "easy" out it I realized that I was was not making any progress. I looked on Summit and they have a few inline starters, where I don't have to use the back bolt at all. I have never used one, so I am looking for input. What is the difference other than the way it bolts up? Why did Chevy even put the extra hole? Any reviews on these starters would be great. Just another day hot rodding.

The inline starter, as you call it, is for the smaller flywheel.

Keep drillin'

There are the mini-starters that use the inline bolts like that, and they can use both flywheels.
They cost alot more than a stock starter, but the work alot better and are less prone to heat on the solenoids than the normal ones.
Ive seen them on ebay all the time for around 100 bucks, and summit has them but they cost more.

Thanks guys for the reply. I saw the one at Summit. It might be worth the extra few dollars. I am going out to count my flywheel. Can't remeber what I have.
