The starter is most likely defective. You actually had it rebuilt? You didn't just buy a remanufactured one? I didn't think any rebuild kits were still out there...a reman is probably a more cost effective option.

If the starter wont disingage , its not the starter check the solenoid on the inner fender. If its bad thats your real problem.
