We could have been discussing the fact that some '66 t-3's had the

It uses the later style crank.
If you want to go to the 12V you will need to open up the bellhousing to
accept the bigger diameter flywheel. And, if you use a manual trans
starter, you will need the adapter starter bushing.
Chirco part number: CPR301106
I would use the automatic starter as it doesnt require the bushing, and
you could convert back at any time. It also has slightly more

I am still confused. Why would I need to open up the bellhousing? I am already running a 200mm clutch disc and flywheel. I just went out to the garage and grab the box for the clutch that I bought in Hershey. It is a 200mm disc, PN 311 141 031. Is the flywheel smaller in diameter just because of the gear teeth difference between 6 and 12 volt?

Looking at CIP's website, they list 180mm clutch stuff for 62-65 Types 3s and 200mm clutch stuff for 67-73 Type 3s. They don't list anything for 66 Type 3s.

I will pull both starters tomorrow and compare. I will need to check out my 6V starter anyway.
