Eating starters after one start?

alright I have searched the whole web for a solution and haven't found one. About 2 weeks ago my batteries weren't getting charged so I replaced alternator and both batteries, truck started up. Go to start again and nothing, only noise was the fender mounted solenoid clicking over. I replaced the starter along with positive battery cables. Ran for one start and same problem, solenoid clicking but the flywheel not kicking out. Brings me to today, replaced the negative battery terminals and a new starter. Started once and then it wouldn't start again. Every starter has been tested and failed for the flywheel not kicking out. What could be causing this? I am stumped...

By the way this is an E99 f250 SD 4x4

Is your key getting stuck in the start position? Maybe try rolling the key back after starting.

It is not getting stuck. After I turned it off and tried it again I took the keys out ignition every time

How long does it run before you turn it off and try to start it again. Do you have power to the signal wire on the starter after it is running.

normally from where it broke down to my house haha. But normally 10-20 minutes. I just was thinking, the first starter that went bad would spin but the flywheel wouldn't engage which means the bendix was for sure bad. But these ones don't spin after the first fire up

After you start it go and check to see if you have power to the little wire on the starter. If have power your starter is turning the whole time the truck is running and after 10 minutes it burns up.

That'd make sense. What could be causing that?
