1986 944T : 968 engine installation problem

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Total Mileage: 75,000;

My mechanic is putting a 968 engine into my 86 944T and on attempting to start it, the starter won't engage the starter ring, but grinds. He thinks the starter gear is not extending far enough to engage the ring gear but just touching and thus grinds. We are using an S2 flywheel and clutch per the supplier we got the engine from, there are only 2 ring gears per PET, T and NA and only NA fits, we've tried both T and NA starters.
