Alright, I replaced the starter with an Auto-lite from Checker auto parts. The problem is as I was trying to shim it to make it a little quieter, I noticed that the snout looks different. This one looks A LOT more shrouded around the actual gear than the last one did..but according to pics from Advance auto parts online, the one for the MT is the one I had that worked great, but this new one is actually for an AT. The problem is the flexplate is actually diggin into the nose cone a little bit and it seems way too far away from the flexplate with NO shims on it. Anyone else run into this problem?
