Default 9 starters 3 flywheels? why!!

my starter on my 1996 k2500 chevy went about 3 years ago mavis tire replaced it with advanced auto new starter . fine. a month later starter went again, it was a new one my regular mechanic replaced it with a new napa. since then i have replaced it 7 more times with new and good oem gm starters and then 2 flywheels until i went to a new mechanic and he said hole in block is not right and starter is always moving and eats teeth off flywheel. he put a block of wood to hold it but i will not drive it now. what can i do? i put in 3rd flywheel and 9th starter. i am sick!!:

Are you running the front bracket on the starter if not you need to

if it the bolt holes out round you can try going up one sizes that mean drill tap and have drill the holes on the starter also


Also make sure the starter bolts being TQ at 40 FT lbs if they not this could be some of the moving going on

Mine did this until I bought a set of ARP bolts. You may need to invest another couple hundred at the salvage yard for another engine.

retap the bolt holes to sae thread instead of the metric one size bigger to take the slop out of it there is plenty of meat there to do so
