Using Hot Heads starter with GM bellhousing


I am wondering how large an area needs to be trimmed off a GM 4 speed bellhousing when using a Hot Heads mini starter and trans adapter. This would be mounting the starter on the drivers side. Also the pros and cons of drivers side vs. passenger side starter mounting. This is for a 392 Hemi and GM 4 speed in a 1937 Ford coupe. Thanks in advance.

My only issue with the starter on the passenger side is the oil filter. I wanted to run the Hot Heads adapter which mounts the filter vertically for cleaner filter change. If you're going to run the remote style oil filter then the passenger side starter is OK. I chose the driver side starter and have no steering column problems. As I recall all Chrysler products have had the starter on the drivers side. I also found the late 60's and early 70's Pontiacs and Oldsmobles had driver's side starters and the trans dust covers fits fine with no trimming.

Hope this helps,

Russ

I got the passenger side starter adapter. I didn't want to have any steering column problems, and more important - you can use a stock GM chrome bottom cover right out of a catalog. I didn't have to trim anything for the mini starter.

oops, I'm assuming you mean a GM 4-speed automatic.
