Wondering if anyone has used a mini starter on their car? Working on my project 305ci/4speed with long tube headers and was wondering if there's gonna be clearance issues with a standard size starter.

I was having issues with headers being close to the starter on hot temperature days. Starter was heat soaked. A starter for a Chevy S10 with a V6 is a mini starter. Actually I found a almost brand new one on a S10 at the local pick n pull. Bought it & put it on my 78 and haven’t had a problem since. No more heat soak problems.

Im running ACDELCO 3371193 on my 70 350 block, Its for a 88-91 Corvette. You will have to make sure that your block has that bolt pattern. Some blocks have a staggered 2 bolt, some are straight 2 bolt and some are drilled and tapped to accept either one. I am running a lightweight 153 tooth flywheel. The dust cover hole will need to be modified and you will need new bolts. It clears 1.75" full length headers fine and I can go get a replacement at any parts store.

I also have a mini starter on my 79 with long tube headers. Some of them you can "clock" away from the headers as well.

I guess I have to see how many teeth my flywheel is. Thanks everybody for your input! I love this site!!!!
You may not have to. When I pulled my starter out, I measured the Diameter of the gear, and counted the teeth on it, (something like 9). Matched it up without issue. If you can't see the entire flywheel, it's easy to be a couple of teeth count off.
