    i have the swap all in but i am having a problem starting it, it almost sounds like the starter is not hitting the flywheel that may be the biggest problem would anyone know a way to fix this problem. maybe it is a wiring problem also not sure though.

    Do you hear the starter spin or does it click? If it clicks check the ground wires make sure contacts are clean and that your battery is fully charged. I was going crazy with mine when it would not start and all it was is a loose ground that was connected to the the thermostat housing.

    How old is the starter? What condition was the drive gear in when you did the swap? Is the inside full of shit? Take the starter off and check it out. Hell, sometimes a removal & installation magically fixes problems.;)
