I may be beating a dead horse at this point, but I measured the original again and the snout is 2 1/4" long where as you can see in the pic from the website, the 1806 (the longer version for the auto) is ony 2" long.
Is there a version that has a longer snout than this one? The pic I posted above is of my original ford starter, which was likely installed in the car around 40years ago when the motor was rebuilt.
Yeah, that's a big difference. Needless to say, something here is not as it seems.
Why is it, I'm running a model 1806 in my 289 which, originally, had a C4 and I have nary a problem.
I'm tempted to pull mine and measure the snout. Maybe, as mentioned previously, your box has an incorrect model, as you stated there are no markings on the unit?
