  • starter problems

    I have an 88 wrangler just put in the ax tranny,new clutch,new flywheel,new starter but the starter just grinds got any ideas

    PUSH START? Was the starter new or reconditioned? Same with the flywheel? Might take the starter back off and down to the parts store to have it tested, just to be sure it is working as it should. Also, if you swapped out an automatic tranny for a manual, the starters might be different... just a guess, but worth checking out. Good luck

      Something doesn't line up. When you pull the starter, look for wear marks to see where the gear is making contact. It's probably nice and mangled looking in one spot now. Also, I NEVER put in reconditioned starters or alternators. They're either junk to begin with or fail quickly after installation.
