Default Correct 1969 Big Block Starter W/ Auto Transmission?

Trying to piece this together. Iím trying to figure out what starter I need for a COPO car with an automatic trans. Iíve seen 1108430 listed for automatics and 1108418 for manuals. However, in trying to hunt for a 1108430, I canít find anything dated before 1970?

Anyone help shed some light on this for me?

Depends on which COPO.

The 1969 Chassis Service Manual lists 1108418 for all 396 engine/transmission combos. L72 was not listed but no reason to believe it would be different.

ZL-1 automatics substituted 1108400, possibly due to the higher compression.

Thanks guys for the response, the car is a 427 COPO. I just read across it and was curious as if I had my thinking messed up. When the car was purchased it didnít have the original TH400 behind it. I just remembered it not being the correct 418 starter. I went out just note to check at what came off of it and of course itís a 430. However it is dated for 1974. Iíll probably just go ahead and snag a 418 and call it done.

Corvettes are listed separately in the Chassis Service Manual.

Camaro, Chevelle and Nova w/396 engine list the same 1108418 starter.

B-body w/427 also shows the 1108418.

What date 418 are you looking for?

Remember is should have the stainless heat shield as well- for both M40 and 4 speed

My 9 K 22 ...1108418 starter has Aluminum Nose Casting...

What application was this ????

Could this Sept Starter still have been used for late 69 Camaros ???

Thanks

Not exactly what you seek but this is on a third week of Feb Baltimore L78 M22 Chevelle.
Cast nose and motor brush painted Lemans Blue with a brush.
Couple views of the afore mentioned shield.
Tube nut for solenoid attaching point is in console.
Twisted off stud is why the starter- head shield had a photo- op.
