I'm having a problem with my starter not engaging correctly on my 1951 jeepster .
I just had the starter checked and tested it's good but it still wont engage correctly
I realy need to solve this any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sometimes a starter needs shims for the teeth to mesh with the flywheel. When a starter is replaced sometimes a person doesnt remember or even notice them when putting it back on.

so the shims go between the starter and the bell housing ?
the problem has fixed its self for now anyway.
