How do i know i have the right auto starter

Your best bet is to remove the old starter, and take it in to the parts store with you, as well as the make, model, year and engine information from your vehicle. When they give you the new starter, take it out of the box and compare it to the old one. Make sure it looks exactly alike.

Need to replace starter on a 1986 Camaro, but cannot get the old starter past the exhaust pipe.

Removing the starter
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect all wiring from the starter solenoid. Replace each nut as the connector is removed (as thread sizes differ from connector to connector). Note or tag the wiring positions for installation.
  4. Remove the bracket from the starter and the two mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter.
  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter front end first, and then remove the unit from the car.
These are the steps for removing the starter on the Camaro. Did you remove the bracket? Hope this helped and best wishes.

Starter Removal

I think you are right about the starter being the problem; the whining you hear is the starter free-wheeling after disengaging too early.
Getting clearance is another matter; I have, on occason, used floor jacks to move the engine temporarily without unbolting the motor mounts but that may be necessary in some cases. Sometimes, I have just had a helper use a 2X4 to shift an engine enough to gain a needed 1/2" of clearance.
