More Stater Issues
Hey all...Here's my issue. My 71 Chevelle has had starter problems for a while. After some adjusting with shims at times and times without shims it will start for a few times then grind, then just start smacking the flywheel. I put a new flywheel a while ago as the teeth were bad, a new Optima battery and just got a new mini starter, (before I only tried stock ones). The engine is a 13:1 compression 360. I have three shims in the mini starter now...It sounded great after putting the shims in and the engine was cranking strong. Then SMACK. Hits the flywheel and gets pretty hot. It has new bolts...Flywheel teeth are good...Any ideas?
Also, the stock starters had the two wires coming from the distributer, each going to two terminals on the starter. The new mini starter only has one terminal, other than the larger one for the battery wire. Which wire goes on that terminal? One or both or..?
