2.9 starter

I recently bought a 87 ranger with a 2.9 v6 and a 5-speed manual. when you turn the key to start it the starter motor spins but it's not hitting the flywheel. The previous owner said it needed shims? I dont know anything about rangers since ive always had f-150's so can anybody tell me if this is true.

thanks

Re: 2.9 starter

I've never seen a Ford use shims, but that doesn't mean I am correct. It sounds like the bendix isn't kicking in, (or out, whichever way you look at it).
Pull the starter and verify this before replacing it.
