    After Doing My 700 To 465 Swap I Hooked My Starter Up And Fired It Up. It Started Fine But The Starter Makes A Lot Different Sound Now. It Is Alot Quieter And At A Different Pitch.

    Do I Need A Shim?

    Do I Have The Little Wire Hooked To The Wrong Lead?

    Should I Leave It Alone And Be Happy It Starts.

    I Obviusly Have A New Flywheel In Place Of The The Old Flexplate Could This Make It Sound Different


    Thanks

    flexplate/flywheel SHOULD be the same, but with wear and tolerances, they are probably slightly different.

    If it starts and doesn't grind or bind, I wouldn't worry about it. :)

    flywheel...

    Its quieter because the flywheel is much heavier and thicker than an automatic tranny's flexplate--it does not "ring" and it doesn't "flex" while cranking...if it sounds quiet and no clashing or stripping noise,I'd say its perfect--like they say,"If it ain't broke,dont fix it!".. :crazy:
