Question about Cars & Trucks
The starter bendix is most likely bad or sticking. The bendix is responsible for kicking the starter drive gear into the flywheel. On some starters the bendix can be replaced but if unsure of how to replace the bendix, it is better to put a completely new starter on.

Sounds like the starter drive is shot, best thing to do is replace starter with new or rebuild.

Well, the easiest solution is to pull the starter and bench test it. Likely areas for your issue is the starter drive, and flywheel teeth. You need to inspect the teeth of the flywheel.
one quick test would be to manually turn the engine to another location and fresh teeth on the flywheel, and try starting again. Engines tend to stop at some spots, and that can cause unusual wear on teeth in one small location.
Sometimes rebuilt starter do not get all new parts, but only what is failing, so it is possible to get a malfunctioning starter drive. Starter drive failure usually turns the engine over briefly, then the starter disengauges....

are you sure you got the wires back on tight? Also it sounds like the bendex is not kicking out like it is supose to.....Did you change the starter cylenoied?
even some new starters are bad, it doesent happen much but it does happen. You might even take the starter back out and run Jumper cables to the starter. See if the bendex will kick out and stay out untial you diconect the starter......Sorry for your run of bad luck and I hope this is of some help.
