Wrong starter...The starter you have is for the larger flywheel

You need a 400 externally balanced flywheel....The starter you have will work with that

153 tooth flywheel uses the starter with the straight across bolt pattern.

The 168 tooth flywheel uses the starter with the diagonal starter bolt pattern.

sbc engine blocks have both sets of starter holes.
