Correct starter for '67 - 327
« on: August 17, 2009, 04:51:27 AM »
  I have found conflicting #'s for the right starter for my '67 - 327 2bbl..    Camaro Restoration Guide (Motorbooks) says #1108367,  AIM lists #1107496 for Hi-perf. & Man. trans., and my Cars & Parts Chevy V-8 Engine casting #'s (55-93) lists #1107320.   Can anyone tell me what is right?   The original 327 actually had a '65 - 6 cyl. starter #1107259 on it when I got the car.  I was surprised to find that these were inter-changeable.   Thanks!

I have had three '67 327 2bbl cars and they all had 1107496 starters in them. If I remember correctly, the solenoids were 1114344.

I'm putting a 4bbl 327 back into my 1967 that originally had a 2bbl 327.  I recall reading that high performance/compression small block Chevys had a "high torque" starter.  Does that sound familiar?  What starter would anyone recommend for this application?

I know that at least for '68 the L30/M20 cars got a special high torque starter, but I don't recall the numbers or have them handy.

Does anyone KNOW WHY  different PN's were used?   

First gen Z28s, which were the highest compression small block engines, all had manual transmissions.  The 'books' say that PN 1108367 is correct for the Z28, and for all manual trans small blocks.   Do automatic trans cars requires a different starter?   Is this typical that auto cars and manual cars get different starters?   Is the difference the torque required, OR the teeth on the starter drive gear?  or ??     What's the difference and the reason for it?

Small ring gears, 153-tooth, 12.5 inch(?) used the straight-line mounting bolt starter.
Large ring gear, 168-tooth, 14 inch(?) used staggered mounting bolt starter.
Starters with a copper extension between the solenoid and motor terminal are heavy duty starters, more torque.
Standard duty had no extension.
