Since you are not hearing any grinding once running the only thing that makes sense is bad teeth on the flywheel against the starter gear.

Question Continued!

Mike -
No, it is actually something on the flywheel that was making contact with the starter housing. I have not taken any photos but maybe that would help. It actually gouges/cuts on the housing until it clears itself. When I first started the engine with the new starter you could hear it contacting the housing until it removed the metal that it was contacting there. Seem to occur on every revolution of the engine and not a 100% interference, would not have been able to install the starter if that was the case.

Well the only thing I can think to do at this time is remove the starter and turn the engine by using a socket on the balancer bolt turning counter clockwise until you can see the interference mark on the flywheel. Then you'll have some idea of why it's hitting.

No way to get on the balancer bolt due to the engine mount. I did turn the engine over using the water pump pulley with the plugs out. Did not see anything unusual indicating what was hitting the housing. Only thing that it could be is the balance weight, don't think it can move though? Very unusual.

Agree the weight is welded on.
