It sounds like the starter is skipping on the flywheel. Check in the tech or aircraft only sections, prob find similar happenings.

if it is the dodge starter get a starter for a v8 dodge truck for a 1990 or up 318 or 360 the v6 starter is the same it has a little smaller motor is the only difference

it sounds like to me that the Bendix is bad. has that starter been on there on worked if so it's you Bendix and yes it's replaceable. if your from around here i can repair it if not find a starter and alternator repair shop and they can unless you have a lifetime starter in which just replace it
