Question Starter Binding Problem On W351 Motor

After building motor, used a 164 tooth flywheel and the starter is binding.
Used a bell housing with the casting numbers of E2AP7976CA.
The starter after initial install will start engine and then binds on the next starting attempt. What should be checked ?

Possibly a long automatic starter being used on a manual - without the manual spacer plate?

ok, is the crankshaft able to be walking because another has told me that if it is walking it could be the reasons for the problems i am experiencing. Please explain Crank Walking if it is at all possible in my problems. Thank You!

Re: Starter Binding Problem On W351 Motor

I do have a spacer plate between transmission and block. Car wants to make a few cranks, sometimes may start but starter stays engaged. Because the next time you go to start the engine the bendex is in the flywheel. Have to loosen the starter bolts to diseengage bendex. What are My problems.

i had a simular problem once years ago with an old valiant i had and cured it by undoin the starter and filing the bottom hole into a slight oval shape and reinstall the starter with the top bolt first then twisting the starter away from the bellhousin and instaling the bottom bolt then tighten the top bolt while still holding the starter away from the bellhousing and then doin the same with the bottom bolt...good luck i hope this helps...

Re: Starter Binding Problem On W351 Motor

I thought the spacer plate was used for manuals g/boxes only. In auto equipped cars the starter motor bolts directly to the bellhousing.

Re: Starter Binding Problem On W351 Motor

The next time that you remove the starter, check out the condition of the gears. Mainly look at where the bendix meshes with the ring gear and look at the actual sides of the little teeth. It sounds to be like a major mis-alignment issue or if it's possible to do so, wrong amount of teeth on the bendix for the ring gear. When you crank the starter does it make a strange noise like the gears are pushing into each other, or the starter is working overtime just to rotate the crank?
