Question about 1981 Ford F 150
I have a 1987 Ford 460 gas engine and the starter makes a horrible noise when i try to start it. I took the transmission out and bought a new starter and watched it engage with just the bellhousing on the engine and it seemed to work just fine but after I put the transmission back in it started making a terrible noise when it turns the flywheel around.
Hi is the ring gear in good condition on the fly wheel ?
also some starters require spacers to space away from the end of the travel of the bendix is the spacing correct?
it seemas very strange that it only makes the noise when the transmission is connected . hope this helps you if not get back to me Lindz

You probably have a bent flywheel
