Well, I figured out the answer to my own question. Every Ford N Starter I have seen on ebay and everywhere else has the Positive or Ratchet type starter drive. I just tried putting a starter with a regular Bendix that used to be on my '40 Ford into the 8N. It won't fit! There's not enough room. A modern Bendix will also not fit. Ford must've used the narrowest drive they could find which is the ratchet or positive style drive which is quite a bit narrower.
