Getting the RB 383 back

Well, good news bad news. Starter didn't come close to bolting  up....no more online ordering for me. This is insane. Fuel pump bolted up fine. Off to my local parts store WITH the stock starter to find something high torque that will bolt up.

Even the little starters from the pick ups will work

It's not that, the starter I got would work, if the bracket didn't have extras to it. The bottom hole on the starter has more metal next to it than my stock starter does, so it throws off the top hole to where it's about an inch off. This starter: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Duralast-Starter/1966-Chrysler-New-Yorker/_/N-ixwm3Z93xl9?counter=0&filterByKeyWord=starter&fromString=search&itemIdentifier=336834_171246_0_ will be at autozone in the morning for me to pick up. It looks like it should work, and it's high torque for a 66 new yorker :D

Sooooo....that starter didn't work either. There is not enough clearance on the block side for any of these starters. I called the shop that rebuilt the starter, and they're going to see if anybody makes a high torque winding kit for the stock starter...if not...I'm at a loss....

2 years, but it was the same motor as the 59 413, 383 ect.
 
A BB is a BB is a BB is a BB.  same for an RB.  It's like that starter was assembled wrong or something.  But shame on Rob.   Auto Zone???

nah, they have to be different starters, cuz when I look it up for 59-62, it says only the bushings and brushes are available....we would send our starters out to be rebuilt when a complete unit wasn't in an auto parts store stock....

That's because it's stock parts.  This is modified

Guys, guys...!
I thought it was fairly common sense to know that a Mopar starter bolts on/into the 'transmission'. The engine in front of it has nothing to do with the type of starter.

I don't know what's been done to the car earlier, but a castiron transmission will not accept a later style gearreduction or even an '80s ministarter starter. You're stuck with using the directdrive starter until you swap a '62-or newer 727 tranny in the car.

Did you also install a ground-cable from the motor to the firewall?
Also try out a modern gell-type battery from Exide or Optima for instance. These things usually have a bit more 'push' then the regular batteries.

Well, I'm almost at a loss. The guys haven't heard anything about a high torque wind kit for my starter. Can't afford a trans right now, so I don't know what I'm going to do.
The battery is pretty much brand new 800 CCA, pretty much the the highest cranking amps they sold. Brand new cables, good ground from batt to block, block to firewall. I could try a larger cable from block to firewall, but I don't know how much that will help.

You don't need a heavy from the blocl to the body
 
There is no such thing as a high torque direct drive, but they could wind it to give it more snot.
 
My mistake.  Slap me.  It's my fault, I lead you down a wrong path.  The reduction gear starter will not fit on the cast iron trans.  Mine had the aluminum trans.   I completely forgot about that.  My fault and I apologize Rob
 
You are stuck with the direct drive.
 
Le's go back to the drag.  Does the engine turn freely?
