65 starter problem


we have a 65 k code that old starter was grinding the ring gear on flywheel. replaced starter, ring gear, and spacer between bell housing and block. starter is grinding into ring gear again! help!!

Hi blair/Paul,  Welcome!

This is a very common problem and it is often perpetuated by the catalogs being wrong at the parts supply houses.  I guess that the new starter looked just like the starter that has been grinding for a while?   That starter that has been grinding for a while....was it the original?

Well if you read the writeup in the attached line, you will become the next Ford starter expert.

Good luck and I hope it leads you down the correct road on your starter problems.


Thanks John. You gave us a lot of info here. I'll get into it in a few days and let you know what we find.  Blair
