George,
We did a couple with Eliminator blocks. Entirely a custom deal. Just have to mock it up with the parts that you plan to use. As I recall, we used a Meziere starter.

Thanks Keith,
Dare i say it, i'll borrow a couple of Chebby Shocked starters & see how they mate up when we start to dummy assemble this thing.

Cheers, George.

I made my adaptor from BBF to Powerglide and positioned the starter on the LH side. Full sump kick out on the RH side.
I used a Cleveland starter. Easier to get here.
I'll see if I have a photo.

That sounds great Colin,
Yes 2 reasons for trying to move the starter, full length kick-out & some extra room for pipes as this is going in a standard XA Falcon with factory steering box (RH Drive).

So are you saying the starter in yours is just mirrored to the left, so you could just turn the mid plate around?
I'm using a JW Bell to T400, i'll have to check if that can work with some mods.

I was thinking of mounting a Chebby starter as the Eliminator block has a nice machined surface on the left.

By the way, love your car bud....have seen it run many a time Cool

If you are using a Eliminator block, I would use the other brand starter. It looks easier to mount.
At Portland this year my starter took a dump. It would have been easier to find a chebby starter than a BBF one.
I'm using a A460 block.
I hope this photo works.

Thanks for your input Colin, much appreciated Very Happy

When i start to dummy up the engine i'll have a better idea which way'll work the best.

I like the way you've done it, the adapter came in handy as a solid mount.

Cheers, George.
