Block plate needed?

Is the block plate really needed? What would happen without it?

Yes it is neede, provides correct spacing and keeps debris out of the transmission and clutch. With out the correct spacing your starter will not be far enough away from the fly wheel to disengage. This one fits good.

The block plate acts as a starter shim and dust cover for the clutch, among other things. Without it, the starter would have difficulty engaging and disengaging with the ring gear.
