96 chevy s-10 4.3 Started having starter problems with the s-10 last night.. (replaced it about 4-5 months ago. It sounded like it was spinning but not engaging the gear.. every once in a while it would sound like it was locking up with the flywheel. Anyway I pulled it and had it checked. passed with flying colors. so I brought it back home and put it back in. Same problem One thing I did notice.. We had a crate engine dropped in it right after replacing the starter and they didn't put the plate (that fits between the hogshead and the motor) back on.. Don't know that this would have anything to do with it but.... Anyway I noticed when I'm putting it back in that (after its tightened up) it doesn't look as if its sitting in their straight.. Looks like the back end is to high (at least the front end is not parallel to where the plate would be).. Never had shims in it before.. it feels kinda spongy when I'm tightening the bolts. any ideas?
