The r terminal only has 12 volts on it when you are cranking the starter over. so the wire that goes to the r terminal goes to the plus side of the coil then the wire that come from the switch also goes to the coil this wire should have only about 8.5 volts on it when switch is in run position the r terminal puts 12 volt on the coil while cranking the motor over the when the switch is in the run position there is 8.5volt on the points so you don't burn the points out the diode kit i don't no why you need it unless the don't what any back feed volt to the r terminal in the run position so i would put it in line(series) with the r terminal wire the flow on the diode is from the -<- this side of the diode goes to the coil

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.

1972 chevelle starter trouble


Since you have replaced the starter motor with a higher torque one then the next approach that I would take would be to inspect the flywheel teeth. It sounds like maybe these teeth could be damaged or even missing. If this is the case it requires you to get a new flywheel.
