CHEVY STARTER WHINES

1993 Chevrolet S-10

1993 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 159000 miles

Went into a business came back out and truck would not start. It just whines. The starter was replaced and it does the same. Shims were removed until there are no shims and it still whines. Flywheel looks fine.

These s-10s' have two different types of starters. It sounds like the starter you have in the truck has either the wrong size teeth or the wrong tooth pattern. Be carefull if you change out this starter--remember to put the shims back in and go from there.
