    me too. I have some ideas, including helicoil. just here picking brains of the experienced people. I have a gear reduction in it now. I am trying to restore it to perfect and am making good ground. I had the head welded and I retapped the intake hole and had success. I don't want to pull the motor so I was looking for an easier alternative. I still think I can make it work.
    thanks

    Charlie,
    The ONLY way I know for you to use a starter with a straight bolt pattern is one of the aftermarket starters that has 4 straight holes which permits using it for a 153 or 168 teeth flywheel.
    Personally, myself, if it can be done, I'd try to helicoil the third hole. BUUUUUUUUUUUT, since it has been tapped out to a larger thread size, that may not be possible. I hate it when things like that get butchered up!

    hi, I was referred to you with this question.
    my 69 350/300 has 2 bolt patterns for starters. the 2 straight pattern holes are good. the offset was butchered and tapped larger. I have a 168 tooth wheel in the car and am running a hamburger starter. I want to know how I can run a straight pattern starter. I have a 153 tooth flywheel on the shelf also.

    The SACC organization is 53-62 Corvettes ONLY.
    Unlike NCRS, which acknowledges original, correct, numbers matching cars, the SACC organization recoginzes ANY and ALL 53-62 corvettes, stock, original, slightly modified, customized and hard core race modified 53-62 Corvettes.
    In your local area, the SACC chapter is the Red River chapter. Tom Lainson is the chapter president. redvette@ix.netcom.com
    The Red River chapter includes North Texas and Okla.

    Tom,
    Thanks for responding. Last night browsing the forum, I came across "tracdogg2" who also has experience setting these up. He's in Garland about a hour from me. Called him early this morning, he said bring it over. I just pulled it out and am on my way to his place (comes out a lot faster the second time!).

    I just bought a used trailer last month so bringing it to you is no problem if this turns out that this rear end is not worth fixing. I'll see how it goes. You're not that far from me and I would like to meet you. Thanks for your generous offer.

    Tom,
    Not very good at posting private messages. Tried to send one this morning but don't think it made it. Anyway, that rear end I posted on "axle nomenclature" has a loud howl b/t 35 & 60 mph. I saw a posting of yours back last Oct. that said you had a good 3.36. Do you still have? Would like to buy it from you if you do. My email address is nbartee@att.net.
    Thanks,

    Norm

    Tom, I can't get Aubrey to even answer my phone calls. If you can get him to sell you two sets of caps, I would like to pay you to set them up on some rear ends that I have. I am also going to convert them to 30 spline axle and spider gears. Thanks Darell

    Hi- Vettsplit here. I had a question.... Will the Hooker 2108 Super Comp headers work with AFR or Brodix angle plug heads? I hope so. Thanks Darell
