Grinding noise while starting. Help Please.

The other day we fixed an oil pan leak on my jeep. To get to all the bolts we had to take out the starter. Once we got the oil leak fixed we put the starter back in. We started the jeep and had a huge grindind noise coming from the flywheel and bell housing. The jeep still starts but, what do you think is causing the noise? Thanks

Sounds like a shim issue. 2x's did you have any shims?

Seems like everyday is a Monday.

There were no shims. It looks like on the starter that the flywheel teeth are not getting a good bite. Maybe when we put the pan back on something got binded in there maybe. What do yall think?

Double check the mounting of the starter to the housing that it is straight.
The engine stops mostly at three locations equally as seen on this pic which the chalk marks show where the worn teeth are, so you may need to rotate the flywheel to see bad teeth. The flywheel can be spun to gain a better bite but if it's removed, it's better to replace it.

The flywheel looks fine and there are no broken teeth. We are going to count the teeth tomorrow and replace it if it is not the right one.
