Question Starter help

Hi all,
My '28 A currently has an Abell starter and I am running it on 12v. The flywheel is the early type (not reduced diameter) with a multi-plate clutch. In order to preserve the starter drive and 1/2" shaft, I would like to replace it with another starter motor I have that has a 5/8" shaft. To this I'd like to fit a modern style drive.
Can this be done with the existing flywheel and ring gear?
I've seen other threads warn that the shaft spring bolt head will foul with the flywheel when using the bendix type.

I look forward to all replies to this question.
