howdy..
as my neighbor and i were removing the transmission
out of my 66....
he noticed the starter..and said that the tranny wasn't a c-4 cause there were only 2 holes for the starter to go into
and he said a c-4 has 3 holes for the starter.
Now..is he right or wrong?
It seems irrelavant..but it keeps nagging at me.
and if so..what else could it be?
i think he should lay off the sauce..
thanks...

He is mistaken for your car. I had a C-4 and when I installed the toploader, the starter transferred right over.

He owes you a beer (or 6).

Smile and ignore the neighbor. All 289/302/351 have 2 bolt starters no matter what trans you have.The 6 cyl had 3 bolt starters as well as all the FE's 390/427/428's

Rest easy... your 2-bolt setup is correct - Maybe your friend got hit in the head by a tranny?!!?

Two bolt holes, and the big hole for the nose of the starter. Yup, three holes.
