Default Best method to setup your starter box for your chassis

Hello,

I am looking to find out in general what are some good tips on how to setup your starter box. I have heard to pull the engine and setup the starter wheel and chassis position that way. Are there other things to look for as well or do? (mark something, etc)

I use an engine in the car and the batt diaconnected. I push down and get it to the point i can roll the starterbox wheel by turning the flywheel and snug it all down.

I had to make a custom plate for the top of my Ofna #10250 bump box to start my 8T 3.0. This is probably not necessary for most boxes, but was the only way I could make mine work.

I take the top plate off of the starter box, then lay my buggy down so that it is upside down and flip over the starter box top and set it on the bottom of the car. This makes it super easy to see where the flywheel for the engine is. Install the locator pins and reassemble the starter box top to the starter box and you are ready to go.
