need a replacement starter, original one died. 1963 427 with long cast iron headers. my 428 starter worked until I re-installed the exhaust manifold. should be a simple fix, just need advice.

Save yourself a lot of grief. Get your original rebuilt. Brian

3155 rebuilders # ... has the flat plate out the front... Works great on my 631/2 Galaxie with cast iron shorties and using 184 tooth flywheel. Will not work with original 153 tooth flywheel unless you get J .V. Custom drive which will swap.

I live in Houston and heat soak is a real issue. It cranks my stroked 428 no matter what. Plus you can index it.

'63 Effie with a 330-390 in it, it also had a top-loader and long iron exhausts. The starter died and I replaced it with a 'super-dooper' Accel that turned out to be a cheap rebuild with a yellow paint job. I hadn't paid any attention to the later-type starter that failed, but it had a side cable-post.
In order to get things to fit without any contact, I ultimately removed the lock nut which was against the case, used a thin piece of teflon as an insulator, used only one nut to hold both the post in position and the cable lug-end tight, cut the post off even with the nut, and weaseled another piece of teflon into the very small space left when the manifold was in place. That finally lasted as long as I had that engine in the truck.
