John Titus designed the SM gear reduction starter and coming soon, the DS gear reduction starter for ALL 5 main bearing engines, including 66-69 with large tooth flywheel.
"To ensure gasket remains centered on valve, place gasket on valve and tighten valve finger tight with valve threads facing upward (use grease to hold gasket in place). Invert cover and tighten valve to specifications. Adjust float as usual."
