Smaller starter?

I'm using a 97 PSD in a project, and I was wondering if there were any starters that were smaller, particularly in diameter. Is the SD starter able to be run clocked 180? I'm very close to the framerail with the solenoid, and I'm already running 3 inches of bodylift, so I don't want to go any higher, but would appreciate additional clearance. Thank you.

Idk if this will be able to help you but here's a comparison between my stock 94.5 starter(right) and an HD super duty starter... The SD starter is a bit bigger but if u where able to clock it I'm not sure how close it might be to the exhaust manifold?

Is that the same size as a stock SD starter? Looks like a high torque starter like DB. Right now my solenoid is about 1/4-1/2 inch off the framerail, I'd really like just a little more... I'm thinking I'll stop by Autozone on the way home with my starter and side-by-side them.

I wonder if it will even matter, how much engine roll do these engines have fully loaded.

I tried to snap a pic of it installed. There's about a fingers thickness between the starter and frame. No signs of it hitting so far. Hope this helps

I bought a two bolt starter for a 2002 E350 tonight and attempted to shoehorn it in to place, no go. Attempted to clock the starter, no go (the pilot for the bendix is asymmetrical). It looks like I'm stuck raising the engine slightly to gain the needed clearance with the 3 bolt. Oh well. The reason I'm having so much trouble is this isn't in a fullsize Ford truck frame, but a midsize Dodge SUV frame, so none of the bends are in the exact right spot. The starter on the Dodge engine was on the driver's side, and was much smaller.
