The starter gear and ring gear are not matched that way. Regardless, the ring gear is so huge compared to the starter gear a tooth more or less wouldn't matter. The difference in gear diameter(location to each other) would be a bigger concern if it doesn't get compensated for. If the gears are made correctly any two amounts of teeth will mesh correctly.

Check your other thread - the cover is mounted correctly.

Perhaps poor analogy. My point was any change to the starter gear diameter, number of teeth on the gear, location of the starter shaft or change in ratio is matched to the flywheel design.

The spacing of 11 teeth is so a designated number of starter gear teeth are engaged at all times so the gear can handle the torque to turn the engine.

Unless the starter gear is smaller and closer so that 9 teeth are spaced the same as 11 there will be less teeth engaged and more stress on the starter gear, even if 9 teeth can be spaced so that the same number of teeth are engaged in the starter ring.
