M3 Starter bracket

I have purchased an E30 M3 starter for the racecar. The starter has the provision on the back for a bracket to connect the starter to the engine block. The new starter does not include this part. The ETK lists the part as "Starter Support Plate" p/n 12 41 1 308 480. Has anyone purchased this part and used it on an M10 block. I see no reason it shouldn't work but would like to before I buy one.

Thanks

Jeff

Dont need it. I bought it and never installed it. She starts up great. If you really want one I'll sell you mine for a few dollars ;)

I run solid motor mounts in the racecar so there is a lot of vibration. I think the bracket may help the starter motor last longer.

Still don't think you will need it. The M3 start is significantly lighter. Otherwise if you are still concerned create a custom bracket. The stock one won't fit the M3 starter if I recall correctly.

you guys won't BELIEVE how much vibration there is on a race car...

Jeff, can you redrill the standard '02 one?

I need to do this swap, too- I'm almost #200 overweight...

so you can't redrill the stock one.

I will get the genuine one or build one.

You didn't look 200# overweight when I saw you at Seattle.....
