Flush AND square is key...You'll know in 6-12 months whether you got it right

I'm 1 for 3 - First one was a success (on the LX) and the subsequent 2 (yep, I've replaced the contacts in the 80 3 times now - 3rd time I had a pro replace them ) were failures...Go figure

As for the shiny little ball. IIRC it will fall right out if you tip the starter over with the plunger out. Assuming you didn't do that you should be ok. No idea what it does or if it is missing means the starter will fail or not...

George's tutorial IS good and where I found out that you can get a impact wrench up in there - I discovered a couple other tricks to make it even easier to get the wrench (and torque wrench) up in there like pulling the AT dipstick and removing a brace that is conveniently right in the way...

Oh, and Robbie's tip on using some silicon grease to verify things is a good tip as well

I have a bad feeling that little shiny ball is somewhere on my garage floor.

coil might be bad. Also make sure the belt on the pulley for the alternator is tight and the pully is not slipping, This will cause your alternator not to re charge.
