Your friend went to a lot of trouble for nothing. Yes it does come into the
flywheel from the other side, and yes you might think that reversing the ring
gear would be required because of the beveled teeth.
For some reason that I don't know, these starters work fine with the ring gear
in the normal position. I don't know of anyone who has had a problem.
