1949 Plymouth starter

I am installing the starter in my 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe P18, and the gear that engages the flywheel is extended as it would be to start the engine. Is that normal? It seems that it should be retracted and extend when the starter is activated.

Not normal, on the car it would be kicked back by the ring gear when the engine starts. You may need to twist it by hand. If you connect it to a battery it should run out under power and retract when stopped, may need a shot of penetrating oil.
