In some cases using the larger 14 inch flexplate/flywheel vs the smaller 12-3/4 diameter version will add mechanical advantage to the starter performance, check and see which one you have, 14 inch has 168 teeth 12-3/4 has 153. If it is a 153 tooth version then a high torx starter may be the ticket or use a 168 tooth to help out.

Some starters have bolt patterns and nose cones for both sizes, some are designed specifically for one or the other but not both.
