Anyone experiencing this:
This is the second remanufactured starter from OGTS in several months. Both starters must be larger than the original starter from my ’72 GT. The bracket’s slots for the two bolts that stick out from the starter are too narrow to allow the bracket to mount.
Also, the starter must be ½ inch longer than original, because after drilling new holes in the bracket so I could mount it to the starter, it is nowhere close to lining up with the 13mm bolt hole in the block.
Has anyone shimmed their starter? Mine is throwing off sparks when the engine runs (I’ve got the bell housing removed so I can observe this). The teeth are just barely coming into contact with the flywheel teeth.
