I just wanted to thank everyone for their help.
For anyone else that comes along, this is what I did:
- hi-torque starter with short bolt on the outside. 70mm diam body.
- HQ mounts, modified as per the drawing. Only need to trim one side for clearance as shown in picture.
- Spacer plates as per drawing
- Folded down lip on k frame as per the drawings supplied.
- LC LJ V8 sump from Russel Oil Pans

I should say I had feedback that the spacer was 1/8” or 1/4” thick, but went with 1/4” in the end.
I reverse engineered the drawing, the original couldn’t be sourced.

For future reference I have my engine roughly where I think it will sit in the car now.
With the spacers fitted to the engine mounts the Top anchor points on the k-frame are parallel with the inlet manifold/carb/air cleaner.
Starter now has lots of clearance with the changes made.
Unfortunately the next clearance issue I’s the bracket on the belhousing for the cable clutch.......another thread for that one.
