Starter Problems

I am working on an 03 F350 6.0 that the starter stuck on. I put another starter on and the solenoid just clicked. took starter out and bench tested and worked fine. I put orig.starter back on and starts truck but still sticks.
Had orig. starter rebuilt, now it just clicks. Any help would be greatly appr.

is it possible that there is a short somewhere, or you arent getting enough voltage to the starter?

I checked the voltage and it was fine. When I'm under it and have someone key it up it sounds like the bendix is going in and hitting the fly wheel. But no marks on it.

this might sound dumb but clean and check the connection of the battery cable to every point they attach, if that dont work and you are sure you are getting 12v to the starter wen key is in start position the olny thing it can be is the starter. A starter is a series wound motor,this type of motor makes maxium amount of tourque ,if the bendix is going in but doesent turn after that point the motor is NOT developing enough torque, this is a problem with the starter motor it self, It will bench test good,however it will not run under load .. This is the best explnation i can give you without a sstarter to show and tel with...... Good Luck with it BILL
