    have there been any changes to the smallblock starter through the years?

    are all smallblock flywheels 168 tooth? this is what my new flywheel is-

    my block is a 77..... in it's previous incarnation, it would occasionally grind, then bust the nose off starters... no amount of shimming would help. now i'm going back with a brand new 168 tooth flywheel we got from a friend. my father thinks there are differences through the years and i do not...

    EXCEPT weren't there some with different sized bolts to match the amount of nosecone body they had to pass through to get to the block?? was that the only difference??

    From what I've heard over time I almost want to say there was a 173 tooth ring gear. Go surf www.paceparts.com and call the 800 number...GUARANTEE they will give you the skinny!!!
