I am attaching some pictures of starters, bendix position, flexplate on engine, blockplate for Lakewood Housing, etc.

An Outie bendix which sticks out from Mounting Surface to end of bendix is 9/16"-5/8".
Picture 1

An Innie bendix which sticks out from Mounting Surface to end of bendix is 3/16"-1/4".
Picture 2

Early + cable attachment point
Picture 3

Small diameter starters showing 'outie' and 'innie' bendix positions
Picture 4

Making a short 8/10 ga. wire connecting Solenoid actuating wire to + battery cable post.  This works great and uses the original Ford solenoid on fenderwell.
Picture 5

My Lakewood Blowproof Bellhousing blockplate with their starter positions for 164 and 157 tooth flywheels.
Picture 6

Flexplate ring gear position relative to block and Is What Is IMPORTANT.  This one measures 3/4" so it would use an 'outie' bendix starter.  It makes NO difference what the parts guy says is correct one for your application, you just need to check it and make sure it is an 'outie'.
Picture 7

What bellhousing you have determines what flywheel/flexplate diameter/tooth count that you need to use.

Likewise the diameter/tooth count on your flexplate,flywheel determines Which bellhousing you need to use.

You cannot use a 157 bell with a 164 flexplate or a 164 bell with a 157 flexplate.  EXCEPT my Lakewood housing or one which has Both attachment points for diameter dimension only.

Bellhousing determines starter mounting position diameter wise and block plane position which is needed to determine which starter is used.  YOU need to measure from face of block plate or bellhousing if you don't use a block plate to determine which bendix Depth you need to use!!!!
