Tire Wheel Car Motor vehicle Automotive tire

I have a ‘97 Dodge Cummins 4wd slow roll truck. Original 13 tooth starter. Got a 152 tooth flex plate, that supposedly came with the truck. I didn’t take it apart, however. Putting engine in my 55.2 GMC 2 ton truck with a 47rh trans.

Problem is the starter gear won’t fully engage flywheel teeth, won’t turn the engine. Were there different teeth gear sets? The interference isn’t much, the starter has little slop in its mounting holes?

Thanks for your input.

Char, turns out the starter nose was full of sand, that is why wouldn’t extend, someone must have substituted starters before I got it, ordered new starter and will disassemble this one for a spare.
Thanks,
