Having problems with your Ford F-100 ?
1970 ford f100 390cu. The started motor gets locked up about one a week. I pull the starter motor and test it by hot wiring it directly to the battery and it works for about a week until it gets lockup once again. Oh by the way this is a new starter motor and I did replace the fly wheel due to the old starter motor eating up the fly wheel. It might be that gears on the starter are getting locked into the fly wheel and not disengaging. Any thoughs and/or have you heard of this problem.
You may need to shim the starter and I would have the starter tested.It is not uncommon to purchase a faulty elecrical part of any type from a part store.
