Outboard Starter drive sits too high and does not clear flywheel

I have a 76 Johnson evinrude 55hp with a Prestolite MGD 4113 starter. I took the starter apart to clean and lube and bemch tested with success. However upon reinstalling, the bendix gear does not sit below the flywheel when at rest, so if the motor is running, the starter is still engaged. Did i miss something during the reassembly?
