Which flywheel do you have? the top starter is for a 168 tooth flywheel/flexplate and it uses the standard diagonal pattern mounting. The bottom one uses the straight bolt fixings like the 153 tooth variety, but can be mounted so that it works with either flywheel size. Personally I prefer the top style because both ends of the pinion are supported by the cast housing.

Stuart thanks for the reply, I see what your saying about the pinion support... the only reason I ask is I am about to put a rebuild 350 in with new flex plate ( think its a 168 tooth ) and rather than use the old starter I thought I would put a new one in... the one in the bottom picture seem easier and cheaper to obtain..

EDIT** Yes its a 168 tooth
