Triumph TR6 - FLYWHEEL RINGGEAR

I LOVE THIS SITE, GREAT INFORMATION. I AM A NEW MEMBER,HAVE HAD 74 TR6 FOR ABOUT TWO YEARS AND NO STARTER PROBLEMS UNTIL A WEEK AGO. TR6 WOULD NOT START AFTER STARTER REBUILD. MEASURED DISTANCE FROM STARTER MOUNTING SURFACE TO RING GEAR, THEN MEASURED STARTER PINNION TO MOUNTING SURFACE OF STARTER, LESS THAN 1/8th INCH ENGAGEMENT.
PULLED THE TRANY AND FLYWHEEL. RING GEAR WAS 3/8th INCH AWAY FROM FLYWHEEL FLANGE. QUESTION 1)CAN I FLIP THE RING GEAR OVER ON THE FLYWHEEL AND GET NICE UNUSED TEETH ON THE STARTER SIDE? QUESTION 2)IS THE RING GEAR TO BE ALL THE WAY UP AGAINST THE FLANGE OF THE FLYWHEEL? QUESTION 3)ANY GOOD IDEAS HOW TO KEEP THE RING GEAR IN PLACE? ALL clutch PARTS LOOKED IN GOOD SHAPE, WHAT THICKNESS SHOULD I BE SEEING ON THE CLUTCH DISC (MIN/MAX). APPRECIATE ANY FEEDBACK.

Hello,

1- Flip is feasible but not my first choice as the two sides are not identical. But I know someone who did it..

2-Ring gear should rest on flywheel shoulder on engine side. It as a tendancy two be push away by starter..

3- I have it weld on flywhheel at 3 spots by a welder. But it is avisable two have the whole set-up balance.

Cheers,

JGC
