I'm putting on the new starter and it looks like the pinion gear slides up and down. Do I need to slide it up and engage it to the gears on the engine, or does it do this each time on its own when it starts?

Just install it. It will engage by it's self.

Biddy67, the pinion gear on most starters moves into the flywheel every time the starter is engaged. Then it moves out of the way so that the starter is not spinning while the motor is running.

This may help explain the LGT Starter Bendix.

Got it in. Night and day with the starting, couldn't start this engine to save my life prior. Now fires up at the first turn of the key. Hardest part was getting the shroud off, so many fasteners.

Good Deal. Can the old starter be rebuilt?
