starting problem, bad flywheel ???

Hey guys, I'm having a problem starting my car now after the top half of the motor was done. New heads, rockers, cam and lifters etc. The starter makes a terrible clunk and is unable to turn the engine. I'm afraid to keep trying to start it now. The starter is brand new. It acts like a compression stroke symptom if you know what I mean. Wonder if the teeth on my flywheel is NG ?? Any ideas??? Thanks

Re: starting problem, bad flywheel ???

take a marker and mark your balancer/pulley and put another mark on the block in relation to the one on the balancer/pulley. take a socket, put the tranny in neutral and turn the crankshaft about a 1/4 of a turn. then turn the key to try starting the car. if the same thing happens and the marks you made on the engine and balancer line up or are very close, you may have broken some teeth off the flywheel.

another way is to take the starter off and look into the opening and have a buddy turn the crank with a socket as you inspect the flywheel as it is turning.

good luck
