So I went to replace my starter today(thanks dan) for the new one, and I bolted the new one up and went to start and I heard alot of grinding going on pulled the starter back out and notice that the old one the teeth were ground down from the fly wheel and the new one was rubing agianst the flywheel and that is what was causing the noise.

So I am wondering what caused the flywheel to get thrown out of whack.. Im guessing that the starter is original looks like it has never been changed. Just wondering if anybody out there with a 3fe has ever experinced the same thing?
