I recently replaced my clutch after it started acting funny (stock clutch lasted 120k miles, woo!). I decided to go with the valeo single mass conversion kit off rockauto, and the shop that did it said they had no problems, everything looked good. However, it has been making a grinding noise for the first half second of starting ever since. It starts up just fine, but I'm guessing this new noise is the starter motor not properly engaging. Is this something that needs to be adjusted properly when the flywheel is replaced, or does it just fit how it fits?

Guesses on my part...."ring gear" on new flywheel should be same spot as OEM dualmass flywheel... basically, no adjustment needed.
Maybe Bendix spring is worn/dirty on starter, moving things may mean pull the starter, lube some stuff by starter gear, reinstall...
Yes, sorta vague, but the flywheel swap likely does NOT mean doing other stuff....
