Looks good. Does the that have a 'soft start' on the starter?

Thanks If you mean, does it fully engage before it spins. Yes. It sounds lovely. :D Others don't seem to have a problem so maybe I was just unlucky and the first starter I used chewed up the starter ring

Sort of, I've seen mention of starters that start revolving slowly as they engage for gentle meshing before full speed is applied. Similar to modern power tools soft start. I see you have the ring reversed so guess you don't need that but maybe the soft start would allow use without reversing the ring.

Yes, according to the manufacturer that's what it does. But the ring isn't reversed. Its as for a pre engaged starter being a late MGB that's the right way.

I used a starter for a 1989 Isuzu Trooper. Bolts right on and no fail prone adapter flange. Got mine for $35.00USD on eBay. Spins the engine like there is no compression

Good job that my friend. Why couldn't you post this a couple of years ago !! It looks very much like mine that cost me £250. It upsets me to say it even now. I'll have a look and see if I can find one to compare. Not had a problem with mine since. As you say spins it like it has no compression. Is yours on a moggy ?
