The Bendix drive is bad in the starter. You can either rebuild it or just purchase a new rebuilt starter.
The Bendix drive is what pushes the starter gear into the flywheel the then it will turn the flywheel. When the Bendix drive goes bad the starter just spins/whirls.

Flywheel or something grings against the starter when clutch is engaged


There is no way the ring gear will hit the starter pinion unless the fly wheel bolts on the crank shaft or loose allowing the flywheel to run out of true. If you have had clutch/ rear seal work done lately the fly wheel will only fit in one position and if that was ignored at some time then the fly wheel will run out and touch the starter pinion.. I would also check the adjustment on the starter pinion as it has to be set by the lever pivot to a correct distance or it will touch the teeth of the ring gear

97 Ford Power Stroke, starting problem.


Does the starter engage the drive gear with the action of a solenoid? It may not be pushing (pulling) the gear far enough. There may be a slipping ring gear on the flex-plate. If you pull the starter again, you can try to see if the ring moves in and out or appears to be slipping around on the flex-plate. The flex plate could be loose on the crankshaft. In any case, the engine or the transmission would have to come out. Check the starter engagement before removing the torus and flex-plate.
