Starter failure

I have a 2001 7.3 in an F250. I've only owned the truck less than a year but have already put 2 starters in it and the previous owner stated that he had just put one in.

The first starter I lost was due to the pinion/drive gear departing the armature shaft. The second starter failed to engage the drive and stuck on. The starter basically burned it self up before I could get to the battery cables.

I don't see any signs of damage from fluids or such. Is it just that the rebuilds I'm putting in are junk? Has anyone else had e perience with starter failure like this?

Sounds like the starters. I don't know if you know this but here goes.
You have
1. new
2. reman
3. rebuilt

If you can't afford the new which IMO is the best way to go then atleast go for Reman.
Reman is basically a new starter that is completely remanufactured. All bushings bearings brushes etc... have been replaced.

Rebuilt equipment is equipment that all they do is fix the problem.

Just some words of wisdom that might help. If you already knew then cool.

I can't speak for the first starter, but the second was a Reman from Autozone. This one is a Reman from Pepboys.

In hindsight I wish I would have purchased new. If this one goes I will go new. It's not as if I am poor. Getting stranded ne t time could be a lot more e pensive.

Does anyone recommend an after market new starter?
