Q: Having trouble getting the starter to sit properly

asked by on

What I had thought to be the flywheel by the noise turned out to be the starter sitting incorrectly. Due to the plate the starter bolts screws go through to where it attaches being bent and a ripple on the sheet metal, I cannot get the starter to sit in properly. With and without shims. (Washers actually due to auto store not selling the corrected shims) so, I need to figure out what's next? What can i/should I do to correct this problem? I have pictures as well if need to be sent through email for better under standing
