87 Wrangler problem with starter engaging

Posting for a friend. Seem the started is not engaging correctly with the fly wheel. Both have been changed a couple of times. When you replace the starter it will start a few times but make a loud nasty sound the eventually the starter will break.

Any ideas ?

Thanks, Shane

I had an 87 that had the same problem. When I bought it, it had a new starter on it making the same noise you are talking about. I finally set the starter in the right place and drilled a new mounting hole. I forget if I had to drill a new hole in the top or bottom, but one of the holes was in the right place. The nose cone on the starter was wrong. You might find a rebuilder that will dig enough to get you the right one.
