Question about 1985 Ford Bronco II
I have a 85 ford ranger 2.8L V 6 and i just replaced the motor and the clutch in it and after i got it all put back in it was fine i drove it a couple of times around the block the it set for about a month and the i tried to start it up and it would not start up so i charged the bat. and it started up so i drove it about two miles then i turned off and when i went to start it again the starter just spun so i replaced it the it started onces then it just spun again but i can roll the truck and the it will engage onces then it will do the same thing again and i have replaced the starter like 5 or 6 times.
There is a saftey switch on the clutch when u press it down it allows it to crank, the switch could have went out, there is also a little bar that slides into an opening in the top of the clutch that mite have slipped out, or there is something called a diaphram (i think thats what its called) it should be on the transmition with that year model it could have went bad or the wires mite be loose

Kinda sounds like it is the flywheel. Next time it happens, take the starter off, and look or feel the flywheel. If it is ground down, you will need to get one put in.
