I've emailed this pic to one place,(for fitment) and they haven't got back to me yet. Is it safe to assume that all bottom mount mini's are a gear reduction type? Is it also safe to assume that a gear reduction type will have a slower cranking speed? I have a hunch the answer to that last question is...unless you have big bucks.
See if this would help and please let me know if you need some measurements. The billet block measures a touch over 3 1/4" and the unit is clockable so it gives you some wiggleroom too.
Thanks John....see where you're starter overhangs to the side of the block an inch or so. Thats gonna kill me....although I do own a grinder.lol Btw the gaskets sleek put up fit my headers like a glove, if your borals are like my basset's, they fit tits.
The only blab's I will even be a part of is just when it is me they are talking about. Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"
My motor mounts via a motor plate in the rear. we had to do some machining on the bell housing to get the correct engagement depth but this has worked flawlessly for four years on both motors. Before I was replacing a starter every 2 months and it was a bitch to do on the starboard motor. I used a quality marine starter and of course, counter rotating. Oh, and as I recall the flywheel had to be machined to mount the ring gear on the back half of the flywheel.
