Being that we put all our power through them and then through the torque converter bolts, it'* tough to fathom that a slow spinning starter (in comparision to revving engine rpms) could exert enough pressure or force to hurt the flywheel vs the torque we put through them to the ground.

If you remove the front mount etc, you "might" (don't quote me) be able to have enough room to sneak in and change the flywheel w/o having to pull the motor totally out. It would be a tight squeeze though.
Yikes that sounds like a lot of work, I think I'm going to have a transmission place near me take alook, I looked at the flexplate but I dont see any kind of contact on the starter what so ever, not even a scrape on the flexplate gears or starter. I might start off with changing the the filter and fluid. Can I use B&M ShiftKit trans fluid or Dex II
