Okay guys, what is the latest verdict on V8 Mustang II starters? IS there a II specific starter, or not? My brother has had constant issues with eating starters and ring gears for a while now on the Pro-Street 74. He's tried multiple starters, two bellhousings, two flywheels, and endless shimming and adjusting, and nothing helps. The starter makes the Chevy-like grinding noise on startup, and nothing seems to solve it. I just spent an hour doing searches on this topic. I found one post by Stewart where he went through the identical thing, and in the end, he said the II uses a specific starter drive that not many people know about and that fixed it. Then I saw references to a starter "comparision" done a while back by Dano (which I could not find) where he found differences in the II starter. But then I found a post from him last year saying there is no difference and any 302 starter will work. So what's the latest info here? Does anyone have any technical info on the "II specific" starter? This is for the automatic, BTW.
