So here’s the skinny, my truck is an 88 d150/318/904 transmission, while doing an engine swap, noticed that what killed the engine was a grenaded torque converter which taking my 318 clinging to life with it. Put a used engine together to work with my tbi rather than carb(don’t shit on my lack of carbs lol) and just went and bought a jegs a727 3sp (67-79) and went to get a new TC for it but it will not mesh with the starter as the ring gear is about an inch bigger, i am told that after 86 they started using different starters for the d series trucks and my trans is 79 back, is it as simple as just opting for an older starter? I still have to shorten the driveshaft but aside from this, everything else seems to fitting up as expected. Id be driving already if i didn't waste a week trying to find a 727 TV with a 12” ring gear for under 1200$ (insane for stock application).
Would really appreciate some more experienced input.
