    :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:

    I am still using the stock 5.0 starter for my 408 and it turns the motor over fine.

    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.

    Check your grounds make sure you have one going to the body from the motor if that is good take the starter to autozone or some where else and let them test it

    I replaced the starter and it turned fine for awhile but I discovered that there is a small leak at the fule rail. Will this cause the car not to start?:bang:

    You need a 164 tooth flywheel. Then you can use the stock starter. I assume the starter turns but doesn't engage the flywheel.

    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:

    Timing issues will cause that. Will make the engine seem like it doesn't want to start, like it's hitting a brick wall! make sure your firing order is right and the timing is right.
