    Thank you
    Yes. The bell housing needs to come off in order to get to the flywheel. Honestly pulling the motor is only challenging the first time. I can have mine out within two hrs of running if need be. Shouldn't be something to brag about but as a "do it yourself guy" the learning curve required several motor pulls (LOL). Why do you need to pull the flywheel?

    do yourself a favor and pull the drive off first
    all you will need to do after motor is out is replace the ring gear on the F/W. I run a Tilton,SD starter, just make sure your backlash is correct, and it will be trouble free!

    I've been running a stock Merc starter on my 11:1 600" NA BBC for 5 years with no issues. Its funny because I often think about buying a high dollar replacement, but figure if it ain't broke don't fix it. I probably just jinx'ed myself for posting this but so far so good. It does help that the motor fires with a quick touch of the key!! If the backlash is incorrect something is gonna give and the ring gear is one of those somethings.
