so , I remember seeing info on here about people using the SBC 350 LT starters . checked at work , price real good for a new one ( only about $10 more than a reman ) , ordered it . checked it out . started looking over the bolt situation - not so good . sloppy going through the starter bolt hole . could order some new long bolts but no shorts ? checked at summit , listed a GM performance long bolt number , but no shorts ? ( they do show the shorts but did not come up in search i was using ) read reviews - guys were having problems but then switched to the GM bolts . apparently they are a little shorter ( which was needed I think going by how the old bolts I had measured up ) and are like a 10mm shaft with 3/8 threads . and the knurling is tapered also . ordered some from my local GM chev dealer seem to work fine . still have to check gear clearance etc but its up in there . but had to order 5 long ( #12338064 at $1.30 each plus tax ) , could order one short ( #14037733 at $6.21 plus tax . really - $6.21 ??!!?? ) anyway , could not remember a "bolt" discussion from before . thought this might help somebody out . if anyone needs a long one i've got 4 layin' around . cost plus S/H . or contact your local chev dealer . some may stock them so you wouldn't have to get 5 . check pics . any input ?
