I ran in to this prob last year. My block only had the diagonal holes. I ended up having to drill and tap the hole so I could put the straight pattern starter on.

I'm not sure about this, but isn't a Small block Chevy 400 the one with straight holes and the 350 blocks have all three holes.
We had to buy a starter for a sbc 400 for this reason, it cost a lot more. It will work on both blocks though.
The next time we build a 400, the machine shop is going to drill and tap the third hole for us.
Hope this helps
Good luck this year

The 400 only has the diag. holes. I ran into this when I tried to use a 153 flywheel on a 400. The small starter wouldn't work.

Check out Pace Performance. They have the OEM small, high torque starter for the vortec and I think it is drilled for both patterns and both 153 and 168 teeth. www.paceparts.com

Mystery continues -

My 400 has straight holes as did my 350 before it.

From my messing with derby cars, I believe a 305 has the diagonal holes.

for any one else the nastra # is 3567 i believe it was used on 80's camaro but most competent parts stores should be able to cross the nastra #.

nope both the 3510 and the 3510m are for larger diameter flywheel as far as i know the 3664 and 3567 are the two common small flywheel starters (153 tooth)

The 3510s is on the 75 Nova automatic it also calls for the fra-100 that is a 153 tooth flex plate if I aint mistaken, will count the teeth on the that flexplate tommorrow at work, im sure thats the flexplate im using with the 3664 starter and have had no problems. Thanks for the info. Eddie
