Hey all. Finally got my busy wired and ready to start. Hit the switch, starter spins but does not engage the flywheel... I have an 091 trans (with 091 bell housing) and an IMI 104 starter (091 12v flywheel) and an SBC with kennedy adapter that uses a 12v flywheel. Should all be working nicely with each other. I have the large post wired directly to the battery and the small post wired to the start terminal of the switch. Any ideas why the starter won't engage the flywheel? Thank you

Thank you. Turns out i have bigger issues now, and might be related. Bolted the axles in, put it in gear, and rolled the car around with no issue... Sounds like the input shaft is rotating, but the clutch isn't putting enough pressure on the flywheel. After talking with IMI about the starter, they suggested either the starter is bad or the flywheel isn't meshing with the gear on the starter. Now that I know this new issue, I think they could be related. Thoughts?
