Angry starter wining and grinding(replace it twice)

another issue i have is that my starter wines and grinds some times and if i go form reverse to park then shut it off and later go to start it it does it every time i replace the starter twice in the last 8 months.. can you shim a ford starter ??? or do you think it would be the flex plate... or what..

does your fly wheel have all its teeth? my first truck had this problem, PO went through 3 or 4 starters, when i got it we found the fly was missing teeth and destroying the starters.

mine does the same thing. my dad is a diesel mechanics working at a bus garage and before that a shop. he told me mine is prob the flywheel he said he didn't know of any way to look at the flywheel with out drop in the trany. he was also telling me that some times the starters can be rebuilt instead of putting a whole new one in

Drive it like you stole it

is the pinnion gear on the starter chewed up? if so you have an alignment problem or your ring gear might be missin teeth. you can check it with a big enough screw driver. c
