Just thinking out load.....

Alfetta starter has lightly different mounting holes, its only a mm different but its enough to strip your ring gear, which is a pity as its a more powerfull 1.1hp vs .7 hp bosch. Could be made to fit by redrilling holes though.
I have a Paris Rhone starter from a 75 which looks good you could use for parts, I also have some Bosche starters.
