Yes, it will fit but why would you want to go with points??? Put electronic ignition in it.

Hi guys, it`s nice to be back. I`m restarting my project and now I wanna buy a starter for the little 318. Unfortunately i don`t have the old starter to have a part number and I don`t know if this is what i need for my car. Can someone tell me if this will fit or give me a part number of an old starter for the 318? It`s a 904 gearbox if that`s any important.

Thanks in advance

Did you mean to attach a picture? Are you trying to restore this car, just get it drivable or something else? Unless you are trying to restore the car, I highly recommend getting a starter from your local parts store from a late 90's or early 2000 5.9 (360). Far better starter, smaller, and pretty much everyone other than restoration guys are running them. They are usually referred to as "mini" starters. They are widely available.

I was referring to this:

Not looking at a perfect restoration, just a reliable one. The guy selling this starters cannot tell me for sure it will fit unless provided with the original part number

Well there are some differences in various years and applications but they all fit one another, what I mean is any Mopar small block or big block starter will fit your car/engine. I didnt check your profile so I don't know where you are, but if you are in the US go to any parts store and get a mini starter from say a 93-95 5.9 pickup. You will be glad you did as they spin faster and are more efficient not to mention that you will probably get a lifetime warranty and it is MUCH lighter than the originals.

I always loved the sound of Chrysler starters on my 71 and 72

Im sure the newer starter you listed sounds different but perform better and likely are smaller.

Actually the sound pretty similar but faster. I have one on my 70 440 Challenger as well as on my 73 416 Cuda and have used them for a long time. They are far superior to the old ones.

I`m not from US. I live in Cyprus island, somewhere in the Mediterranean sea (I know is cool) and if you ask about any V8 parts to the local stores, they will laugh in your face. Anyway, i think i should buy the one from ebay and if it doesn`t fit, i`ll get another one later

Ok, cool. I know where Cyprus is and have been there in fact.

Any MOPAR starter (for a V6 or V8) will fit your engine; the only issue you may encounter with some of the newer starters is the connection terminals; some of the newer starters have a block attached to them that positions the connection studs in a certain way; that said these blocks can be removed which will give you connections similar to what your starter has now; in other words you can definitely use them either way.
