I need to get a new flywheel for my internally balanced 383. I see there are 2 available, a 153 tooth and a 168 tooth. I tried to look up what the difference between the 2 is, other than the obvious 15 teeth. I found the difference was between the staggered and inline bolt holes on the starter. Well, the block was a staggered and I drilled the 2nd hole inline so that I can use my Tilton starter. Which flywheel should I get??

Which diameter flywheel is the Tilton starter made for?? 153 tooth is 12-3/4", 168 is 14".
Some race starters have a double inline pattern in the aluminum mounting block and can be used with either flywheel depending on which set of holes is used, is your Tilton this way??

are you talking flywheel,[manual shift] or flexplate [auto] the majority of manual shift bellhousings won't fit over a 14" wheel,better to know which you're using . dave

Yes, I meant flexplate not flywheel. Sorry for the confusion..
