Starter not catching

2 Answers


New starter or old one? If old one shims probably won't help.


I have a new starter and my F100 is making a worse noise than with the old starter. I have no idea how to shim it.. I have done everything else. Flywheel and TC look great no cracks, bolts are all tight, new starter and solenoid and im still eating batteries and have a metal on metal noise! HELP
