Comments about Dorman - Help Starter Alignment Shim, (1) 1/64, (2) 1/32, (3) 3/64, (2) 1/16 In., GM:

They seem to do the job they're made for BUT only after some filing! The open end of the shims is too narrow and not deep enough. It ended up working but not a pleasant surprise!

  • Q:

    my new starter is making a lot of noise will shiming stop it?

    • A:

      A high pitched whine during cranking (before the engine fires) can be caused by the pinion and flywheel being too far apart. Likewise, a whine after the engine starts (as the key is released) is often a result of the pinion-flywheel relationship being too close.
