From what I gather, its not specific but not all automatic starters work correctly. Some don't engage the teeth enough and wear prematurely.

Personally, I'd swap the bellhousing out wit a 157 tooth versions and sell thay 141 tooth setup to some M2 guys. Those things were oddballs when they were newer, and are just plain uncommon now. If you don't need the clearance, its not worth the trouble of special torque converters and odd starters.

No, Ford flexplates aren't flat.

I had a 77 Mach1 mustang I remember taking a standard 2 bolt starter from a full size ford and installing it with no problems, keep the original trans setup the smaller torque converter will yield a higher stall speed, good luck finding motor mounts for your car, use a turn buckle to limit movement.
