    If the teeth are engaging that is good. If it was a mismatch the teeth would not engage. As far as it just ticking sounds like a weak battery or the starter does not have a good ground. Was there grease, oil, dirt or anything else on the mounting surface or was it nice and clean as well as free of paint?. As far the gear not retracting it could be shims or the lack of rotation. The starter relies somewhat on cyntrifical (<---spelling) force to retract the starter gear.
    If you have a fully charged system there could be a bind, but like I said, if the teeth are interlocked, more than one tooth anyway, should be a match

    well its kinnda hard to see BUT it look looks like there gears dont match and there only 1 tooth in and like the teeth on the fly wheel are MUCH closer to than the gear on the starter like you could get an extra tooth in on the bindex and it would fit better lol im not sure though. ohh and there was dirt/ oil on the mounting surface
