I cant keep a starter in my dump truck!!! I am going crazy trying to figure this out.
I have all new ground wires from the battery to the engine and to the frame and even to the body.
That did fix the issue i first had with the battery ground wire getting hot.
I bought a shim for the last starter but it did not do any good. Still grinds.
I removed the transmission and put in a new clutch and at that time the flywheel looks good. I dont have a grinding issue as much as i burn the bendix out. Or so it would seem.
I had this same problem with a customers dump truck a few years back, and it was the same vintage truck.
I was told i could get a GEAR REDUCTION starter but i cant find any product application for this truck and the parts stores are clueless.
