Hello Green. Not a problem, but to get best responses, you should generally start a new thread with a new subject for answers. It also makes it easier for other folks with issues to find answers later. In the mean-time...Hello ,
I dont mean to butt in ... but ... I have an issue .
I would first ask for more info. Is this a previously functioning setup or a new combination of parts? If it was working before, what has changed?When I tried to align everything , my starter won't bolt to the bell . the bolt holes don't line up.
Ah, then there is your issue - not the starter. The block plate (spacer plate), flex plate, torque converter and bellhousing must match each other. From "spacer plate seems to be smaller than the bell", I have to assume your bellhousing is of the larger type (164T) and your block plate is the smaller one (157T). Here's the big problem:... if you were to take the bell out of the mix everything lines up - spacer plate , starter to crank . the spacer plate seems to be smaller than the bell.
