I am ready to install my engine but don't have the starter ready yet. will the starter just slide straight in after the engine is in ? I don't have the wish bone or the steering column in. thanks Ken

In a word, yes. The bendix drive on the starter is installed AFTER the starter is bolted in place. You can't put the starter in, with the bendix drive on it.

If you want, you can get plates to blank out both hogshead starter openings and run without it. My starter never worked right even when my grandfather was driving the truck in the 1940's and 1950's. I decided to not bother with it. The blank out plates were much easier and I like to use the crank anyway. :-)

Be soooo careful as you insert the starter as it is easy to damage the magneto coil.
