:bang: I have a 94 gt and I have just dropped a 351w in it. I am very eager to get it started and running but I cant get the starter to bolt up right on the flywheel. The flywheel I have is a 157 and I am using the stock starter and the bendix on the starter doesn't contact the flywheels teeth. Can anyone tell me what size flywheel in on the 94 gt and if any sell a starter for this application. Any help is appreiciated.

I reinstalled the stock flywheel but I had it turned down to 28oz. When I try to start it the starter acts as if it wants to turn but briefly but it doesnt turn over totally. The starter is stock and I had a fuel leak at the fuel rails but i corrected leak by installing new ones from aeromotive. Could i need a new starter now? Is the 351w to heavy for the starter to turn. Any help please!:bang:
But what can the problem be...... I am very anxious to get this thing running an dstart eating some LS1's because some odd reason these guys like to talk so much smack...........:bang:
It might me the starter sometimes when they wont turn over the motor its either the battery is too low or the starter is going bad the part that throws the bendix out wears out and cant throw out the bendix and turn it with enough force to turn over the engine also check your grounds on the starter.
the starter engages the flywheel fine but it turns briefly then stops. I checked to see if my rails are leaking but they arr not. What else could cause it not to start. My battery is fine and I checked my grounds and still nothing:bang:
