Starter for Rover 3.5

Hi guys, question for you. I am trying to find a replacement starter for the Rover 3.5 I have installed and so far TSI and D&D are out of stock until either the end of the week or next week. Do you know of an off the shelf mini high torque starter that works with this application? I have been trying to figure out the tooth count in order to do a more generic search and based on an OEM style starter listed on Summit's site it has 166, does that sound correct? It mentioned it fits big/small block Chevy's, also the solenoid needs to be on the bottom to make the connections easier. Thanks!!

Evidently everyone needed a new starter last week and forgot to tell me.

Well Art it might help :). Who would have thought starting one of these would be an issue, lol. Guess I will wait to hear from Mark and pay the price.
