Also check for a twisted mounting. This can come about from the bolts being loose, the wrong type (do not have the factory knurl), missing or loose starter to block hanger, cracked thru the threads of mounting boss on the block are typical failures.
Manuals and automatics use the same starters. There are 153 and 168 tooth ring gears but they also use the same starter gear end. These starters just mounted more inboard with the smaller ring. The mounts are different between them so you can't screw it up, or at least that's GM's theory.
