So, in the process of swapping my Falcons C-4 to a T-5. It has had a 164 tooth flexplate that I am changing to a 157 tooth flywheel. I know about the now famous pencil test to determine whether I need a short or long snout starter but how about the difference in the teeth count? Can I use the same starter on either 164 or 157? I don't see much discussion about this in the forum. Hoping I don't have to replace the starter.

Here's what I found out. The teeth are the same size so it's all about the starter snout. I had a long nosed starter (3/4") so it worked fine.
