'Nuther idea..... starter bushings. Same engine/starter, about 6 months later, started dragging again, I removed it with the intention to replace with a new one, found out the open end (towards bellhousing) bushing was eggshaped. That heavy bendix assembly takes it's toll on old brass. Not to mention the flywheel ring gear, and reduced clearance between the armature and case. I ordered new ones..... after I rotated it 180 deg putting the tension on the meat of the bushing, reinstalled it and drove for a week till I decided to change them.
