I guess that makes sense. I'm just surprised because the other truck had a 168 tooth flywheel and it worked fine and the starter mounts appear to be the same. Any idea if the competition starters bryan was talking about have more adjustment to them. Because if the nose cone was smaller on a different starter I would be able to lower it some more. I'm really close I don't think I would have to go much lower. Also wouldn't a 153 flywheel require a smaller diameter clutch. Because the 168 tooth clutch size is what my clutch size would be if it was a manual from the factory.

the new starter I purchased today would fully engage but still wouldn't turn engine over fast enough and would hang up. So i am close.

No harm in trying that is for sure and looks like that could be the answer looking at these.

The starter I have has no nose cone.
just a starter pinion gear sicking out.
It is also a dual flywheel starter-----2 sets of inline mounting holes.
A set for the 168 tooth and a set for the 153 tooth.

The drawback for many on this particular starter is that there is no provision for 12 feed to the coil on the older points cars-----not an issue if you are running a 74 or later ignition system.

I'll have to look it up to see what starter I actually have
I seem to recall a Powermaster 9000 or 9600-----not sure---been a long time since I bought it

I think I'v got it figured out guys. I found out today that there are about 8 different starters for chevys from year 75 to 87 and like bryan said they are different for manuals and automatics. I am going to hunt down the starter that goes with the flywheel I have because it came out of a chevy van that has the same muncie transmission and same size engine as my truck. I thought chevy starters were pretty much all the same but according to my LMC catalog there is quite a range. Finnally got a hold of my chevy buddy and he filled me in.

Also guys I was wrong bout the internal and external balance thing. I was thinking the flywheel mount on the end of the crankshaft was the wieght for balancing. My crankshaft has a funny shaped weight where the flywheel bolts up. The other truck has a one piece seal and just a round mount wih bolt holes. Again I'm obviously still learning.

Got it running tonight!!!! Got the starter from the van turns out its a 75 with a muncie and a 350. BUT I had to put about a quarter of an inch of shims into the starter and it was bottomed out on the bellhousing of the tranni. The truck sounds great and no funny vibrations or anything. But obviously ther must be a better fit starter for my setup, I just don't know what it is or how to find out without buying starter after starter.
