Re: Starter Trouble

If its a stroker 454 it might be neutral balanced.If it did not vibrate before with the old flywheel it may be an external bal.and the flywheel you have now might not be

Re: Starter Trouble

I was wondering about that but seems the last one was also externally balanced. Im just thinking if they milled some of the new one for better engagement, that would effect the balance right? The shop kept saying that they are not aware what crank is in the engine and it seems to protrude out more than others. Looking at the paperwork it seems to a scat cast steel crank series 9000/externally balanced. Are there specific flywheels that may work better with this setup?

Re: Starter Trouble

So funny story, the turndows that were installed were facing out each side, and for some reason that rattle made me think something was vibrating. I ended up turning them so they just go out the back and it seems to be better.

Argh...now, regarding the starter...it now seems to hesitate before starting. This didnt seem to happen before, possibly shimmed wrong or maybe check the gear mesh gap again? Battery has good voltage so cant be that.

Also i have been looking at starter videos and it seems that the engagement between the starter and the flywheel should be atleast 1/16th and go up to 3/8ths when cranking. So thats how my starter was before it blew a tooth of the gear....and the shop said there wasnt enough engagement. Am I missing something...

Re: Starter Trouble

If the starter engages and hesitated to crank the engine when hot, it may be that your timing is a bit too advanced, the engine is wanting to kick back. Engagement should be 1/16, basically if you install a drill bit at the end of the tooth on the starter in the pocket between 2 teeth in flex plate.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

Re: Starter Trouble

I have one CVR and four Powermasters. Both are pricey but worth it.

Couple of junkers and a few clunkers.
