951 no start issues...wrong parts????

K, here's the situation..
Bad clutch to start it off, did the normal r and r. Going in I found that the bell housing was being nicked by the ring gear. So, replace the ring gear, bell housing with all good used parts... After everthing was installed, went to go start the car.. Starter jumped but not spinning, then would spin but not engage... So here's my questions(keep in mind that I'm a 911 guy helping someone out on this one)

Is the starter from 944/951 different?
Is there a difference in bell housings, and would it even had fit if it was not?

Thanks guys....

Jimmy,

Take a look at these pics. You can see the scratching on the new starter. The old starter is on the left in the other pics.

Starters are the same for 944 and Turbo.
Clutch housings are different and there is more than one part number for the 944NA.
Turbo ones have been superceeded to one part number.

You have a bad starter........

If you use a 2.5 N/A bellhousing or turbo..... the starter will fit and engage.....

Thanks guys... Found out that the car has a 2.8 andial motor, so who ever built it mis matched parts to more than likely match some reff sensors .... Still working with it, so ill keep it updated.. I also read that alot of 944 and 951 owners go through starters like crazy, so almost there...

The following is from memory, so excuse me if I'm making a mistake;
Starters for NA and turbo cars are the same, if you're talking 86 and up. I do believe an early starter will bolt up, and work with a later model car, but the starters are actually different on the earlier cars (85.5 and earlier).

The posted starter pictures all look like late starters to me (but not positive, it's been a while since I've seen an early one). Late model starters are quite a bit lighter than early.
