I am trying to check my clearance on my starter drive and flexplate, and all I have read suggest pulling the drive gear out with a screwdriver and check clearance, and I can just get it to come out with screwdriver (very difficult to get at it) and it just hits the teeth on the flywheel. If it meshed, it looks like there would be a paperclips clearance, or more, but how the heck do you get them to engage?

thanks in advance

I was able to move the drive gear with my finger tips after prying it out from the starter body. That's all I had to do to check the meshing clearance.
