My tendency is to work inside cab until I reach a stop, in this case angle drill for power windows cut out, then go under the car.

So my goals for today,

1.Connect gas tank sending wire to gas tank

2. Replace body mounts

3. Install heat shield on starter

4. Shim starter

It is the starter racket that I need help with. This is the mini hi torque starter, new, on a new 383 motor. I am hearing grinding noise on start and noise after start that goes away. I have shimmed out using 4 supplied shims and built a 5 shim. Now, am removing shims. When I go under car, will take measurements of gap to compare to instructions.

Starting to think I have lose fly wheel bolts which I will also check. And, man my left shoulder is sore.

Well, the ring gear to starter measurement is too small. So, pulling the starter apart to install supplied spacer between starter motor and mounting block to get more space.
