I must mention that my G started out as a 300GD 603NA. So Not exactly apples to apples.

Hey Mark, so the intermediate adapter plate used on the 616-617 won't bolt up to the 603? Does it really matter what side the starter is On?

Wayne, the bell housings are completely different and not compatible. Different shape & bolt pattern. Starter position is just an easy quick way to identify what version you're dealing with

Locked up. How did you run your A/C lines? I'm ready to set the motor in but it's such a pain to work on those lienes where they connect to the firewall. Thanks.
