96 c1500 5.7 starter issue

Asked by May 29, 2018 at 11:14 AM about the 1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had starter checked at parts store. All checked ok but was
not under a load. It only clicks when installed. Tapping does
nothing. Was told needed to be shimmed but that doesn't
make sense. Is it still a bad starter?

Check to make sure the motor is not seized up.

It was a bit tight from sitting but spins free at the crank and the flywheel
