Due to limited space...many of these cars required a spacer or two between the starter and flywheel...unfortunately you have to trial and error to find the right match...start with two spacers...then remove or add as needed...Hope this helps

Remove the starter and jump the connections to a Battery to see if it spins. Make sure you connect positive to the positve end and the neg to the neg end. Hope this helps.

The starter should have come with shims. You may have to adjust the new starter with the shims, so that the bendix, starter drive, meshes properly with the ring gear.
As long as the battery is fully charged it should turn the engine over.
Please let me know what you find.

My chevy Malibu 2004 cranks but won't turnover


Sounds like the Bendix on the starter not working. When the starter energizes the gear on the starter meshes with the flywheel to turn over the engine. I have also heard of small rocks getting stuck in the flywheel teeth that will prevent the starter from meshing the Bendix gear with the flywheel gear.

Starter stays engaged on my 06 Chevy Malibu


There are a few possibilities...
  1. Starter improperly shimmed and is biding to flywheel.
  2. Starter or flywheel teeth worn causing binding (not likely)
  3. Starter solenoid return spring broken.
  4. Ignition switch problem causing starter to stay powered after key released.

Smoking starter


when mounting a chevy starter you must shim it down so it wont lock up when the bendix hits the flywheel..if it binds up it will burn up..there are different thicknesses of shims that fit between the block and the starter nose cone..use one or a combination of these to shim down enough that it wont drag..shim too far and it will spin out..I have owned chevys for years and have yet to see one that did not need shimmed down..these shims fit over the mounting bolts on the starter..

HOW DO YOU TELL IF MY CHEVY 350 NEEDS A METRIC STARTER


There are two different size flywheels (starter ring gears) on these engines. It sounds like you have the flywheel with the higher number of teeth. Find a good auto parts store to get the right starter for your truck.

There are two different size flywheels used on Chevy engines.The straight across bolt pattern is for the small diameter flywheel the staggered pattern for the large flywheel.The block is drilled for both starter patterns.The F- bodies in 1986 came with a small flywheel-so you should need a starter with the straight across pattern.The depth doesn't change ,just the distance away from the crank.
