Well, went to crank the motor up for it's first time yesterday, just to be disappointed.  The starter is just free spinning and not engaging the bindex.  This is frustrating as it worked just fine when I pulled it off.  I'm just wondering if ya'll might have any suggestions of things to try with it still on the motor.  Not only can I not throw around cash on a new one right now, that sombitch is all kinds of hell to get in and out.  I'd just as soon not have to do it again if possible.

why'd you take it off? could you have used the wrong bolt holes for the flywheel you have? Maybe the start wire is hooked up wrong or shorted to the wrong side of the solenoid?

It's a McLoed (sp?) starter, put out by B&M.  I built a new motor and put the starter off old motor on the new motor.  I'm in the right bolts, I can pry the starter gear out to mate up with the flywheel.  It's got the power to turn the motor once I pull the bindex out, but it's not pushing the bindex of it's own accord.  As to the wiring, I believe I've got it right.  I'm running the battery cable to the larger post, directly against the starter motor.  I have a crossover wire jumping between the other two posts.
