Question about 1978 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

I just put a new (used) 350 engine in a 1978 1/2 ton Chevy. What's the difference in starters from a large flywheel to a smaller flywheel? What kind of starter do I need to get for the smaller flywhee

Have tried both standard & metric starters for this particular truck and neither one works. What do I need to look for?

    The starter bolt pattern on the starter I tried was offset and the starter that came off the truck was straight.

Why does my starter just click and not turn my engine over?


I don't think the number of teeth on the starter matter. You just need the right starter for that engine.

In 1968, the 283 CI was replaced with a 307 CI. In 1969, the 327 CI engine was enlarged to the 350 CI. Those are the options for those years, small block v-8s: 283, 307, 327, 350; Big block v-8s were the 396 CI, and 402 CI. An old chevy guy might be able to tell you what engine you have, by looking at it.

HOW DO YOU TELL IF MY CHEVY 350 NEEDS A METRIC STARTER


There are two different size flywheels (starter ring gears) on these engines. It sounds like you have the flywheel with the higher number of teeth. Find a good auto parts store to get the right starter for your truck.

There are two different size flywheels used on Chevy engines.The straight across bolt pattern is for the small diameter flywheel the staggered pattern for the large flywheel.The block is drilled for both starter patterns.The F- bodies in 1986 came with a small flywheel-so you should need a starter with the straight across pattern.The depth doesn't change ,just the distance away from the crank.

If when you jump the starter with a screwdriver & it spins without engaging the flywheel - I would say with reasonable confidence that the starter is bad..
