Check all connections from the battery to the starter. Also check all grounds. If all else fails take the starter and have it check.

Possible not shimmed correctly. The starter teeth have to engage correctly for the starter not to hang up. That's what probably happened & broke teeth off. You had better check your flywheel around the entire circumfrence as teeth may be missing from it as well. Starter won't engage if teeth and flywheel teeth in same spot are broken off. If the flywheel teeth are bad, it will be a spendy fix to put a new one on... Rick

actually you probably have a bad ignition box. I had a ford that done the same thing. there is a spring in the ign. box that when u turn the key over and then let go it is suppose roll the key back.but after time it will get weak or break,or the box itself will break causing malfunctions.
