Most Chevy starters will work fine without any shimming. What you really need to do is to look through the hole where the starter mounts and turn the engine by hand and verify that the teeth on the flywheel are good. If they aren't, nothing you do to the starter will help. If the teeth are in good condition you may want to remove the nose from the old starter and transfer it to the new one.(the only thing that can go bad on a nose is either it's cracked or the armature end bushing is worn. Most often both are still good) You know that one was good because it was working. You do need to know something about putting together a starter motor to do that but if you aren't sure how to do it, have a rebuild shop do it for you.

Not starting


If I understand your statement correctly, noise but the engine will not "turn over." This sounds like the starter motor is running but the gear that engages the flywheel gear-teeth is not making contact at all or is moving into too-slight contact, just enough to make a lot of noise. In U.S. cars the device on the stater motor that moves the starter gear forward is called a "Bendix." As the starter motor starts to turn, the Bendix shoves a small gear forward, engaging teeth on the flywheel which spins the flywheel to start the engine. If the Bendix is sticking or has failed the gear will not move forward at all or not far enough.

Sarting with the least cost first, I'd look toward a "sticky" bendix. Try using a light penetrating oil or perhaps, WD-40 to free-up the Bendix.

Starter spins but will not engage


this could be a few problems that cause this,

1. your battery could be weak and not have enough juice to engage the starter solenoid

2. the bendix could be messed up

3. this is probaly the most common problem, the starter solenoid went out

the best course of action would be to have your battery load tested, and if its fine, replace the starter

Sometimes, when I tray to start the engine no sound is produced... just a fine tzzzzzzz sound from the electric starting motor that ends in a "clack" . May you give me some information about...


The "Bendix" is the starter drive in the actual starter. When you crank the starter the bendix is driven forward into the flywheel. It sounds like the bendix spring is worn or week and it's not meshing with the flywheel. Instead it's grinding against it. If you're ambitious you can pull the starter, dismantle it and replace the bendix or option 2 replace entire starter w/new or rebuilt. Both will have new drive and save you a bunch of time.

This is a marine application. Had a bad carb problem that went on too long, and starting became a big issue. Last year I needed to replace the flywheel. My mech gave me a temp 351 modified starter to...


you need to make sure that the ring gear (the teeth on the flywheel) & the teeth on the starter motor are compatible IE.that they mesh properly,measure from the engine housing to the flywheel teeth,then measure from the starter flange to the teeth of the starter motor when it is at its longest point to see if they are going in too far or not far enough to engage properly if they are going in too far you may be able to use ordinary flat washers between the starter motor flange & the engine housing remove starter do do this.....hope this helps....... cheers

1994 Ford Escort- Went out to start the engine- The starter would turn but wouldn't engage the flywheel-160,000 miles on it, so I figured it was the bendix- I replaced the whole thing-all new starter...


If you turned the flywheel with a screwdriver and the bendix engaged the flywheel, then it sounds like it could be the flywheel. There may be "teeth" missing on the flywheel, causing the bendix not to grab onto the flywheel. Have the flywheel checked. If there are "teeth" missing, then replace the flywheel. I experienced the same problem with my Nissan.

I just replaced my starter but it makes an ugly sound. i tried shims,still makes the sound


Hello,
There are a couple things that can make starters noisy. Check the flywheel teeth for worn or damaged teeth. Next check the nose cone bushing on the starter. Alot of remanufacturing plants or Shops don't replace bushings. I have encountered this many times and it's fairly easy to do. The nose cone is the aluminum end ov the starter. you remove the solenoid and the two bolts at the back of the starter and the nose cone will come off.once it is off look at the very end of the nose cone and notice the bushing if worn will be oblong in shape. A new repair kit is less than $20.00 from auto zone and includes bushings and brushes and bendix gear.
I know cause I just used one of their kits to rebuild my starter.

Starter runs but won't engage flywheel


Hello, I would make sure that your car is not one of those half year cars becuase two differn't starters may be offered for the same year of car. Also, I would check and see if your battery has enough CCA's to power your system. The only other thing is to turn your crankshaft with a breaker bar to turn your flywheel to possibly get a fresh area of teeth on it. If none of this fails it's as simple as just replacing the flywheel. If you did a bench test on the starter and the bendix engaged that is good. Buying parts from an Auto parts store does not gurantee the part is good and that the bendix engages the full distance to turn the flywheel. I would try to find a mechanic who rebuilds starters to make sure that the bendix is engaging fully. I hope this helps you!

Starter not catching flywheel


the starter is either not engaging or the bendix is shot. Bendix is the gear assembly that slides on the starter shaft. it should spin free in one direction and turn the starter in the other. and slide freely on the splines (in/out)
