You mean your starter clutch..and if it's squealing..worn bearings if any in there or shaft of center and it's rubbing on the case??

Something else causing the squealing? Can you post a video? Make sure all the parts were included when you reassembled:
Check that the torx bolts aren't loose. Also, the starter clutch in the area where the three rollers sit can also get worn.
