starter for V8 Vega with a 4 speed transmission.

Pleez, I need help! My son and I are working on a 75 Chevy Vega GT Kammback with a 4 speed Saginaw transmission. I've had the car since 76. We took out the 4 cylinder and are gonna put a 350 small block. We got a Monza V8 bell housing part #360162 but can't find a starter to fit. We have tried 4 and still nothing. The flywheel is (153 tooth) the one that was on the 4 cylinder and barely fits the bell housing. If anyone knows what starter fits this application please let me know. I''ve heard that Chevy made V8 4 speed Monza's but just have never seen one. I had a 1975 Chevy Monza town coupe with a factory stock 350 but it was an automatic. any help will b greatly appreciated. Thanx.

These are listed for a 75 Monza 350ci w/Manual Trans.
More Information for PURE ENERGY 3560S
More Information for ACDELCO 3361836
More Information for ACDELCO 323254

76-78 Monza 305ci w/Manual Trans:
More Information for ACDELCO 3361870
More Information for PURE ENERGY 3689S

RockAuto Parts Catalog

The 153th Flywheel/Flexplate uses a Starter with straight across bolt pattern. 168th Fly/Flex uses a Starter with Staggered bolt pattern.
The 75 Monza Starters look to be correct.

Monza/vega starter

Thanks for responding to my post. I will focus on searching for a starter with a straight across bolt pattern rather than staggered. I still think there must be some kind of block/spacer used because of the distance from the starter to the engine block. Maybe have to make something up to fit? I've kept the car bone stock all these years but decided to pass it on to my son and he has decided to go with a more reliable engine. Can't say I blame him but then again I only replaced the head gasket once in so many years. Not only that but the four banger still runs good. Once again, thanks for your help. Tom

k member fit.

A long time ago I had a vega that had a pumped v6 installed If I remember right It took a different crosmember, My brother had a v8 vega and required parts swaps to get the v8 to fit in a 4 cyl chassis, ? I think the V8 monza had unique brackets and mounts for accessory mounts. P /S . alt, air pump etc. There should be a forum some where with the info you need.

I had no idea a Vega flywheel would go on a 350. Are you sure that's not the problem? You may need a normal V8 one.
