yea. figured that out.. but its still grinding like before with the old starter.

on the mustang forums somone asked if i had the correct clearance with the block plate.. well sure because i dont have one.. and that helps align the starter correctly

Gotta chime in on this one. New flywheel is in order(or flex plate) looks like a flywheel by the pics, that one is toast. 2nd point I see looking at the thread, you need to shim your new aftermarket starter as the plane on it usually never matches the blockplate. Too close and you'll shear teeth on the flywheel, too far away & you're Bendix won't engage the flywheel(also shears teeth quick, but you should here a spinning sound from your starter if this is the case. Hope I helped! Btw this is more than likely causing your eletrical issues too, brushes, etc... in the starter getting too hot due to the misalignment.

Thanx Ibanezz!!! I assume you're a guitarist as well. Gotta edit real quick, you can only shim the starter out(away from the flywheel) The aftermarket starters aren't planed to sit too far away. Also the spinning I referred to is because the starter is too close, not too far away. Sorry for the mis info... newbie mistake, my m.o.

To snowcolt17, please read my quick edit/reply. Usually aftermarket starters come with a set of shims depending on the app. Check your Bendix teeth(the little gear that comes out of the starter that engages the flywheel) just to make sure you didn't shear them already. If you did, then sorry to say... u need another new starter. Shims should be all you need, even with a block plate a lot of after market starters require shimming. As far as the tips go, it just depends on your mechanical ability, and the application...rwd mustang manual tranny shouldn't be too difficult at all, reply with questions, just not sure of your experience pulling trannys out. Obviously Google it if you aren't sure.

Gotta repost 1 more time, yeah I know... lame. Spinning sound means starter Bendix is too far away. Too close and you hear a chunk sound. Too much work, not enough sleep.
