Starter may be out of alignment

Is it making grinding noises?
Are therre any shims between starter and block?

Chevy starters don't all require shims. You shim it if it doesn't fit right. Most of the small blocks I have worked on, and thats lots, require no shims, but some do. Depends how well the starter lines up.
There is usually a bracket and bolt at the front of the starter also. Its a good idea to put this back on. Helps align and keep the starter from shifting.
