Are you using the Kiggly kit? I am also having starter issues. I have tried the auto and manual and it seems like the gear to the starter doesn't go out far enough. I'm hoping to learn something as well. I am using a 6bolt in my 2g.

To provide good input, I would like to think to use a 2g starter since your using a 2g trans and converter. I attached pictures regarding the difference between a 2g auto vs manual starter. I hope I dont cause confusing here.

Update ***

I ended up using a 2g starter for a 5 speed car however i added washers as thick as the starter plate the washers are between the bell housing and starter.

I hope this helps anyone doing a swap.

My issue is as if the starter isnt extending enough. Your added washers because it's going to far? FWIW I have used both MT and AT starter and they both do work. However I can see only half the gear is being used.
