starter instalation

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model: 911T; Year: 1986; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2L engine with carbs; Total Mileage: 100,000;

I installed a one of the light wt. high torque starters on the 1986 engine in my 1973T. It whined a lot and finally broke. On removal it definitely looked like it was hanging up (not disengaging from the flywheel gear). I have it rebuilt and ready to install. I think the rebuilder might have changed the gear on the starter. I am wondering if I should use any grease on the gear to help it engage/disengage with the flywheel gear? I don't want to get grease on the clutch tho! If so, what kind of grease should I use and how much? I'm a little gunshy about having the starter fail since I spent a huge amount of money to get this engine and modify/rebuild it... Thanks!
