Probably something I'm just missing. I have a 56 Pontiac. 64 389. 4 speed. Bellhousing is a 61-64 big Pontiac bellhousing. We made the clutch linkage around all of this because everything seemed to work when I pulled the engine from old car. Starter bolts to bellhousing BUT the gear sticks out too far. It is always up against the flywheel. Old starter was cobbled together. Looked like maybe had a shorter Chevy armature and a copper bushing. It worked but it would hang up. It did hang up and fried the starter. I could make a spacer to set the starter back but am I simply missing or not using the right things?
