Is there any difference between the starters? Are the interchangable? If not can one be installed by mistake and work for a while before going bad?
You're kidding right?Hey Bubba , the starter on the 350 is alot larger and heavier when your under the car .... the starter for the 305 is smaller in diameter .... when you go by a auto parts store go ask them to show you the two starters ... same hook up connections , just size difference ... Thanks the Geezer :nanawrench:
you can put a starter from the 4 cyl .nova engine on a 454 as long as the flywheel is the same dia. it will go on and work. it may crank slow due to a smaller wound motor but will engage correctly. for non ls motors there are two starter classes, stagered bolt ones for large flywheels and strait across bolt ones for the small flywheel. there are variations of both but they will all interchange within thier classes.if you are getting an ocational clunk it is a bad starter, the wrong starter wont engage even once
