You DONT want to start moving the location of the engine in relation to the center diff gear.
I have a 9.5 Pro and the chassis opening is large enough for any starter wheel. He has other issues causing his problem.
Of course you don't want to move the engine because that will affect the gear mesh
but you can lower the engine without affecting the mesh.
As I said before, I do have the 9.5 Pro with a Picco .21 engine and the flywheel that comes with it and with the stock motor mounts allow the flywheel to reside within the starter slot, not above the chassis but inside the slot. So he must not have the correct flywheel. (A new OFNA flywheel is around $20).
BTW What is a bi-directional clutch????
