Default Flywheel trouble

I recently purchased a 65 Ford F-100 Pickup. After about a week the starter failed. No big deal right, I replaced it with a started from Auto Zone but, it quickly tore up my flywheel. Apparently, it was only contacting the very front of the flywheel. Anyway, I ordered a new flywheel that is supposedly the correct one for my truck, but it doesn't have the same stamped number as mine. The one in my truck was C5AE-6380H, THE ONE THEY SENT ME IS C6AE-6380C. It seems to me the only difference is that my original flywheel was for a 10" pressure plate and the new one is for a 12". Could I simply have new holes drilled into the flywheel to match my old flywheel?

No, do not drill new holes in the flywheel! Take it back along with the old one and show the parts slinger exactly what you need. It may give him a headache but better him than you.

^^ what Biker said

and also look at both of your starters
you will see a difference from the mounting surface to the gear/nose
get one that matches the original
in the future always compare the parts you buy from every angle and bolt hole
this will save headaches down the road, even if a part is a replacement does not always mean it will fit correctly
