I think the bendix is sticking on the shaft - before you buy new motor assy - try cleaning up the bendix assy and look at the ride areas - you might want to clean the ride areas rubbing with 1000 grit sandpaper to clean up. then put a little white grease on the ride surfaces and try that. Of course the easier way would be to buy a new bendix to try. It appears that as the starter turns - the bendix does not get thown all the way out to engage - that is why I think it is sticking. DO NOT HIT THE STARTER WITH A HAMMER. YOU CAN BREAK THE FIELDS LOOSE FROM THEIR EPOXY AND DESTROY THE MOTOR. That is all I can suggest.
