if you pull the starter out and turn over the flex plate by hand inspecting the teeth on the flex plate are any ground down or missing or show signs of any kind of damage at all ?
how are you making out ?
dont forget to rate us here at Justanswer !
it is the big toothed part of the flywheel the starter contacts to crank the engine over
is the starter drive itself coming out and contacting the flywheel teeth and grinding into the teeth and not turning the engine over ?
if the teeth on the flywheel are good and none are damaged at all then there is something defective with this new starter or they built it with the wrong teeth on the starter
bring it back and get another starter if by chance the replacement starter does the same thing there has to be something damaged on the flywheel teeth nothing else will cause this issue
no problem at all
