The most popular are 153 and 168.The 153 is a straight across bolt pattern and the 168 is staggered.

The starter must be shimmed properly. Check it this way. Use a 1/8" rod as a feeler gauge. Fit it between the round part (not the teeth) of the starter gear and the top of a flywheel tooth. See article in SCR Oct. 2001. SLEEPY
