My 165 hp mercruiser, 84 vintage, doesn't engage right away when I crank it. It clanks a couple of times and then usually after 2 or 3 tries it starts right up. On some cars I know they need shimming for the starter to engage properly, is that what I need to do? Is there a kit for this issue or do I have to just cobble something up? Or is this something else?
Thanks for any help.
