  • mean green starter grinding

    I recently upgraded to a mean green starter on my '85 cj 7 but now I have a grinding about every two to three starts. I have the original 4.2L and this starter is supposed to be made for it. I had no problems at all with my factory starter. I'd like to keep the upgrade. Any suggestions?

    Good chance you need to shim it to get the gear a little closer to the ring. Or fix the spot on your ring that is a little warn down.

      one size fits all never does. i don't know where you got it from, but maybe you should be complaining to them that it doesn't work. putting in a starter isn't like brain surgery for crying out loud. if it's supposed to work and doesn't, make them get it right.

          yes, but mean green should be contacted for warranty info. also, mean green doesnt like it if your starter has been submerged.
          Just passing on info....

          I have the same one. If there werent already shims on your old one then none should be added to the new one.
