I just replaced starter and flywheel on 1970 ford f100 and when I tried to start it, it started to grind and then finally started. I let it sit for about a week and tried to start it again and now wont even start, it just starts to grind. And answers?
I HAVE SEEN THE PARTS GUYS GIVE PARTS THAT WILL FIT, BUT IS NOT CORRECT FOR THE APPLICATION

I loosened the bolts on starter and took a leverage bar and pried up on the starter and it moved up almost 1/2 inch and then tightened bolts back down and works fine now. The bolt holes on the starter were bigger than bolt allowing starter to drop approximatly 1/2 inch away from fly wheel.

BEST REMEMBER THAT NEXT TIME, IF YOU TAKE THE STARTER OFF
