Alright. I didnt know where to post this. So if its in the wrong spot, i am sorry. But anyway. I have a 67 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass w/a 455. Me and my dad where messing around with it last night. We changed the points and what not. And we where messing with the distributor, trying to get it running a little smoother. ( We just moved and dont have all of our right tools yet.) I shut the car off. And went to fire it back up and it F-ed my starter. IT broke the housing that holds the end of the shaft. So we went and got a new starter, thinking the starter had just done its time. Put the new one on and its doing the same thing. So we are not sure? The car started up fine about a month ago and I drove it around for like a week. Anyone know what might be causing this??? The only thing we can think of, is that the starter needs another shim????
