1966 mustang starter problems

How is everyone just need some advice on my starter. I have replaced my starter twice in two weeks. First one was a cheap 39.99 starter I bought. It didnt even want to fit in the bell housing so I took it back. Come to find out it was made China. The second one I bought the OEM replacement for 49.99 it has a motorcraft casing it fit good. When I turn the key it will crank just fine but there is this little grinding sound almost every time I can let go of the key quick and it want do it. I just dont know. It did take care of my car not starting when it gets hot I replaced the starter cable and starter. thanks Harold

try replacing the solenoid. Do you have a V8 with headers? Maybe too much heat on the starter.As far as the grinding noise? worn flywheel
from past bad starter bendix problems? If you replaced the cables and have a rebuilt starter your problem is more than likely an incorrect match of bell housing and engine possibly. Good luck

Put some high temp grease on the starter drive shaft.

Please post the Ford part # from the starter so I can see which one you have.
