The engine typically only stops in one place when it is killed,so the starter only contacts the one area, resulting in the wear. It will never have equal wear , because the compression will always push the shaft to the low compression area! Many times there will be two worn spots! If this was dire situation, the ring gear can be removed and repositioned and will work fine.
