Ok so I bought a new starter with a wider mouth opening for the gear and what I found is that the teeth on the starter with some shims will engage the flywheel and turn it some but it is a tight fit and the teeth stay stuck in the flywheel. I can't seem to lower it enough to have it mess corectly because after about 4 shims it bottoms out on the bellhousing of the transmissinon. And it appears to need to be lowered some more. I re counted the teeth on the flywheel and it is 168 which is what I had before. ????????
