This is normally just a problem with the starter bendix .

Yes as said this is the bendix drive you managed to get away with greasing the reduction drive gears as to say on this type, if you was able to grease then even better .
In many case when the drive gears drys up the gears have a lot of play .
Lets hope this is all that is needed and later does not cause you any more problems .
Kindest regards Greg
