Did this video help you?

anthony10370: Wow I’ve never seen starter shims on my European cars, even going back to my 1972. Now I have to replace the starter on my 76 f250 and I have to worry about this crap? $&@@$ why? Why can’t things be made with precision in America?

Justin Poulos: I like you

Francisco mojica: What if I have no shim on my starter and there's just a little to much play... sometimes it struggles and doesn't want to start sounds weak

BAWLS2894: After install of a new starter it worked perfectly. Two days later the starter is just spinning and the car wont start. What should I do?

Fast_GT500&Nova_SS: The shims go between the block and the starter to space the teeth of the starter away from the flywheel for all the retards that are asking, duh. Where else would they go? lol

Sam Kirk: Eric, you are a nice, handsome man, but why r U looking ever so guilty?

Marylou Esquer: I've got a 1977 Chevy K10 350 with a manual Toploader 4 speed behind it can not get a starter to work not engaging properly from one shim to fortunes up and down been through two rebuilds and still can't get it right doesn't seem to want to go the question is is the flywheel on the manual for the clutch 4-speed transmission are the teeth on Netflix different than the automatic flywheel can somebody please read this and get back to me let me know what they think

Cronyx Ravage: Why is it bad for it to be making contact all the way in the floor of the gear valley?

Elvisr29: do I have to do this for a Honda Civic 2008

Dean Smith: read and watch Stupid! god was a Jew when it came to handing out commonsense

Christopher Beasley: EricTheCarGuy Thanks for the info

Nick Johnson: The shim goes between the brake pad and rotor for all you idiots asking....

Great video!

kellerrobert80: You had many colors of paints to choose from and you select the one that photographs the worst. Why?

Natty weight Chaser: How do you shim a starter on a 2005 Hyundai Tucson?

chrisvill54: is this only a gm thing or does it apply to all starters?

I have this same engine and Tranny on my k1500. for some reason after years of no issues, my truck started sounding terrible when I would try to started. and it would not start. took my starter out had it tested at 2 different places, it failed, so I'm assuming that the starter was sticking out and not coming back when I let go of the ignition. so I bought a new starter and tried this method to measure clearance, with the shim that came with the starter the Clarence was right on, but the truck sounded bad when I would start it, so I added another shim and it sounded much better but the clearance was loose with the 1/8 Allen wrench so I guess maybe my flexplate might be rough on the teeth and that's why the 1/8 clearance might not be enough. I took off that cover for the torque converter bolts for now incase I keep having issues but so far it's been starting good makes a little noise but nothing compared to before, my flexplate teeth are a little banged up but not broken so I'm thinking that's why it still sounds a little rough when starting. some day I will bring the Tranny down and replace the flexplate and do the rear main seal and torque converter seal.

consaka1: Instead of paint I bet that colored paste that you use to set differential pinion/ ring gears would work even better.

majorghn: Do shims go bad? When I start my car the starter is hitting against metal, sounds like it's loose maybe and smacking against the shim?

Francisco Huerta: ey erick i got a problem on a 00 vortec escalade will crank n sounds like starter is to weak 2 turn engine over wat can i du
