Starter NOISE

Hi Folks,
New here, so please be patient. I have .......An 87 YJ 4.2 The starter makes an amazing noise when it cranks. It scares kids and old people. While this is really funny most of the time, it is going to grind parts to pieces before long. The guy it came from was losing starters all the time and put a new ring gear in. I am wondering if it is in backwards or if it was for the wrong application. It has 164 teeth. I prefer to recieve email as I forget to check back. Thanks in advance.
