Hey all, I'm new to the forum, but have been turnin wrenches for a while. I've got a 99 f-250 powerstroke, manual transmission, and it runs terribly. Well, it starts as good as it runs, and I ended up having to put a starter on it. I pulled the old one off, and it had a spot in the nose cone where the flywheel had rubbed about 1/4" deep. I went to put the new starter on, and it wouldn't line up. It's hitting on the flywheel where the other starter clearanced itself. I'm not sure whether I've lost a thrust bearing or what. I'm not able to get any end play in the crankshaft, but somthing isn't lining up right. Are there two different starters for this thing or something? I just wanna know if anyone has ever seen this before. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
