The higher torque of the later starters require a support bolt that connects the end of the starter to the motor mount. Removing and installing this can be a real pain, but there have been instances of fractured bell housings from ignoring this step. A good alternative is to use one of the small gear drive starters as used on the later Spiders, or purchased from one of the Alfa parts suppliers. These are much easier to install, don't require the support bolt, and crank much faster.
