Hi, I'm new to this forum. I decided to join to solve issues with flywheel and starter on the '87 Wrangler. My Jeep munches starters. My brother-in-law swears it's due to poor quality, rebuilt starters. I think the reason is related to the fly wheel. When I lived in Kona, I had 'Da Kine' Jeep machanic tell me so. I don't work on it myself. I'm looking for a solution before I get another starter. Any sure-thing ideas about how to fix this out there?
