Before spending any more money you need to check for excessive end play in the crankshaft and if that is the cause then the bearings need to be replaced.NOTE:Ford starters do NOT require shims,you want the gears to mesh deeply as possible,

Starter stuck in start mode


The flywheel could be bad. The flywheel is so big that it will only grind the teeth every so often when it is in that spot. If you are sure that the starter is bad, replace it. If you do need to replace your starter this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/starter.htm

The starter is going bad, replace this ASAP as it may ruin the teeth on the flywheel which would be costly = the transmission has to be removed to replace.

Starting


yes, it could but starters usually give you an indication. They drag, grind but usually let you know before they just quit. Could be the battery, or more likely a bad battery connection. And batteries are cheaper!
