ot 5.0 swap into cj, starter blems?

Hello to all;
I'm putting a 5.0ho maf motor into my 79 cj7and have only run into one major problem!!!!
I'm using the bellhousing from a 70's ford truck so it bolts to my tranny, now the 5.0 starter won't engage the flywheel!
The starter nose had to be shortened to clear the raised spot in the bellhousing where the nose sits, but the drive doesn't appear to travel far enough to engage the ring gear! anyhelp will be greatly appriciated! what starter to use? stock 89 5.0 flywheel.
