The stock starter is made of softer metal than the flywheel. You should be ok.

Typically, the starter will grind its teeth off

If it is bad, put the car on jackstands, remove the torque conter to flywheel nuts(13 or 14mm)((4 of them)), turning the crankshaft clockwise to get to each one.

Remove the dipstick tube, fluid will come from tranny. Put jack Under Tranny Pan More Toward the front of the pan, unbolt the tranny to engine bolts (16mm), unbolt the two tranny rear mount bolts and slide em out.

Move tranny back, take the flywheel off and install new. Use new flywheel bolts and blue loc-tite.


Removing the old one will require a short pipe to add the extra strength to your hands.

best advice, jack up the car, unbolt the drive shaft and drop the tranny out and actually look if you really think its the flywheel. shouldnt take more than an hour.
Drop the starter before you go yanking out the entire transmission.

In ya'lls opinion what are the chances my stock starter grinded teeth off instead of breaking enough teeth off my flywheel to cause this problem?

chances are better that the teeth are gone on the starter..

you have to unbolt the starter to remove the bellhousing.... so you might as well take it out first and go from there
