I'm going to change over from my 153 tooth flywheel to a 168. I test fitted a 168 tooth flexplate in the scattershield and my stock starter (block mount type) doesn't seem to fit. Will I need to go to mini starter to make this combination work? Or am I missing something here. Any help would be appreciated.

Yout srock 153 tooth starter will not work. Or at least the nose is incorrect for the 168 tooth flywheel. You will need to get another starter or at least the nose to a starter that is compatable with the 168 tooth flywheel. If you get a mini starter, most have 2 sets of mounting holes. 1 set for the 153 and one set for the 168 tooth flywheel.

Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll go with a mini then.

I went from the 153 to a 168 and all i changed was the starter nose. The block was set-up for either starter.
