Starter won't fit on gm bellhousing

I have a 1990 350 chev that is being mated to a bellhousing from a 68 truck the bolts match but the starter does not fit. it's hitting the bellhousing. I was wondering if it would be ok to grind the bellhousing or do I need a different starter.

Thanks.

- Rico.

use the 96 PU gear reduction, some need clearance and some don't, you can grind but this starter takes less grinding than the old big one

So go to a parts store and ask for this starter, or is there more info I'm going to have to provide?

Thanks.

Butch,

What if you used an aftermarket high torque starter from Jegs or Summit.
The starter from GM is not going to be cheap.

Ask for a starter for a 1996 GM 350
They are usually around $100 at most parts house's with a lifetime warranty.
Charles I have had more greive from these supposed Hi Po starters over the years, it ain't worth the trouble.

Is this a gear reduction starter from GM.. Not much technology involved in making one of these. They basically use a Nippendenso motor and have gear reduction. I believe they take a Nippendenso starter motor from a Japanese car starter and build a gear reduction box for it.

I've been using the one from Summit for a while. The first one I had would not quit spinning after I started the engine.

For the $100.00 price for the GM unit with lifetime warranty, I'd get it.
