Starter help

Need some help here

I just finished installing my new motor and tko600.
I bolted the new starter up and wired it...
now when i activate the starter it just makes a small *bing* the stater is for a 153 tooth and the fly is a 168 tooth. sounds like it just smacks the plate.

The fly is however a 168 and the starter is made for a 168. It just wont interlock with the flywheel...

i don't hear anything turning or digging or anything of the sort. just a *bing* and nothing. (battery is full charge as well)

does shimming the starter down move the starter gear further away from the teeth on the flywheel?

sorry, i am totally lost

"Proform 67052 - Proform High-Compression Racing Starters" is the starter

Re: Starter help

From my experience you need to add shims until you can fit a paper clip between the starter gear and the flywheel. Mine was not far off without the shims
