Hi, I have a tunnel bottom, 454, bell housing, top mount starter, normal rotation, berkeley
my starter alignment. just kicking my butt on how to align an upper starter. sometimes it doesn't catch, sometimes it catches and spins off after a few cranks. all parts fairly new. (starter from cp performance and standard flex plate from summit, upper 12:00 position) I can get engine started, but embraressing with engine not always catching/loud spin off. been like this since installation
- should I not use a standard flex plate?
- any tricks on how you align the starter> easy to pull, hard to see wear marks on ring without pulling engine, even then, unsure.
just looking for the easiest aproach/fixes first.
thanks for your thoughts
