I have gotten the old starter out and new one in. I left the oem shim that was there. The starter that I put in was a oem and I think it is reman too. I put everything back together. Got a injector kit off of Injector-Rehab Fuel Injector Cleaning Services
. works well and was $20.00 for all 6 injectors (O-rings, washers, and screens). Anyways, was up till 4am finishing the bmw. Sad, could not find the keys. So this morning I went out and try to start the bmw. I heard the starter click and the gear engage but does not turn. Sounds like a clunk. So I have 12v at the starter. Battery has full juice. Found out the starter is binding on the flywheel. Is there something wrong I did or did not do that would cause this? How can I get the starter to not bind? I am thinking of taking the fly wheel cover off and have someone try and start it and see. Also if turning the fly wheel some would help. The bmw is a pain in my side right now.
