Starter issues

So..... Here is my dilemma...... I installed a new clutch and flywheel and in the process of removing the transmission I broke the negative post in the starter solenoid. So I bought a new starter, figured it was a good time to replace the stock one. After installing everything back onto the car I left the top starter bolt out because I read that almost everyone does this. When I started the car I'm getting a screech from the starter which means its binding on my flywheel. Has anyone else had this issue and what did you do to fix it? Is the top bolt a possible problem?

Forgot to say the screeching is only on starter disengagement and only last about half a second

Mine does that too, not really anything to worry about just irritating. For good measures id throw that top bolt back in

Well that sound will eventually lead to the teeth on the flywheel being chewed up so definitely can't let it stay that way. I will get the top bolt on and update y'all afterwards. I don't think it will matter since even some ford techs leave it out but ya never know. It is an aftermarket lightweight flywheel and non-OEM starter.
