Make sure you have the gear reduction starter, same starter as on the automatic trans.

They Mitsubishi have a rebuild division for small electrical like starters and alternators
there will be an "R" in front of the part number.

If the part number hasn't changed it would be R-MD072585.

I might be able to measure the stock starter bolts tomorrow morning, maybe tonight and tell you the length, then you can just get the correct length bolts from ACE hardware or something.

I measured each of the three different bolt lengths for the trans-to-block and the top two are 40mm long (only the shaft, not the head). The bottom two are 65mm, and the starter bolts are 60mm. Again, that's not the overall length, just the threaded shaft section, from the bottom of the bolt head to the tip of the threaded part.

Hope that helps. I can't remember the thread pitch, but you might take out one of the bottom bolts and bring it in when you get your starter bolts so you can match the pitch.

Starter bolts have a fatter shoulder on them that extends down an inch or so then the bolt is smaller and threaded on the end.

I have mixed up starter and lower bellhousing bolts before. They do thread in to either location, but it doesn't work very well. :)

yeah, that must be what I did two rebuilds ago.  I may need to go through and pull each tranny bolt one by one.  My starter bolts might be in there somewhere.

Did you ever get a resolution to this? I'm experiencing the exact same problem and have already replaced my starter twice.
