I was having an issue of the bendix clunking against the cover. After playing around with different bolts, springs and covers, I decided to take the starter off and go for a do total do over. When I went to loosen the starter mounting screws, the 2 top ones had been loose the whole time, allowing the starter to drop in the back under its own weight, thus raising the far end of the bendix spring. I tightened the screws and BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!! No more clunk. Thanks for all the suggestions.
Are you saying you had a screw loose????
I think he's saying he had 2 screws loose.
