transfer case mount/hitting the starter
if one of the mounts on the transfer case/tranny cross member were to be bad and squashed out could this cause things to shift and make the flexplate hit the starter??? none of my issues with the flexplate started till a while after filling the transfer case with fluid and i think maybe when the fluid was drained and it flowed out on the stuff it got into the bad mount and made it worse.
any ideas ??? i can post pictures of the mount if need be ??
