Some Starter Issues

I was wondering if anyone knows engine blocks real well, so here goes.
I have a 1979 nova project under way. 350th transmission with a pre 1975 350 v8. I always thought that all chevy engines ran with the 168 tooth fly wheel and the appropriate starter, turns out (after alot of asking around) that I should try the smaller 153 tooth flywheel and change the starter. Well it worked Like a charm, it turns over like a 2005 car. I was just wondering why this would be, I thought that flywheel only went on the old powerglides. This may just be a silly young person question that I am over looking though .
Oh and when I changed the flywheel I put it on backwards and had to take the transmission back off AGAIN Thats a good move by me
