Whoa! Before you beat the tar out of your starter, clean both battery clamps, removing the negative one first (always), the posts and also trace the cable down to your starter; loosen the terminal and retighten it and then follow the negative battery cable to where it is attached to chassis or engine block and clean that terminal too.
Finally; are you sure the battery still has ****** needed to deliver 120-200 amps?
Shotta may be right since the Bendix (it engages and disengages the starter gear/flywheel) could be full of gunk but I would check the simple (and more common) sources of trouble.

You need a new starter for sure. Good Luck

    That works only if the bendix is stuck it will work but not too hard you can break the starter housing. You can try but I really don't recommend that, but its your vehicle. However it does work temporarily. Good Luck

If the battery is good and the alternator is charging, check to see if you are getting good voltage at the starter. It could be the starter or it could be your battery cables are needing replacement. I assume you have cleaned your battery terminals....that's actually the first thing to check.

Move the key in and out of the lock cylinder over and over to clean the contacts. Then wait the three minutes. Don't try to start it before the three min is up or the three min. timer will start over.
