Measure diameter of starter lip. It mite b significantly less than OEM by .020" or more. Also note the groove around the end of starter shaft in new starter. There should have been somekind of a tite fitting snap ring in the groove????? In some cases such a snap ring acts as a shock absorber to keep the bendix from pounding the nose cone. Based on the pic the ring gear on flywheel looks ok but my computer resolution is not the best in the world. Inspect ring gear all the way around it. U will find more wear at 2 points 180 degrees apart because that is 2 points where the engine stops each time it is turned off. Mite find a broken or really bad ring gear tooth at 1/2 way points around the ring gear.

To gerry rig/repair LOWER Crack;
Cut a strip of 3/16 steel about 3/4" wide and about 2 to 3" long. Bend it around outer diameter of engine block spanning the crack like a bridge. Drill 2wo holes and bolt it to the block. Do NOT use self tapping bolts. Use a grade 5 BRAND NAME bolt. If bolts have NO markings on head of bolt they are junk bolts and will most likely break.
