How good is the battery and alternator? Are your connections at the starter clean and tight? Are your wires to the starter free from corrosion and nicks in the insulation? Where are you getting the starters from?

If it came with shims you may need them. The starter might be too close to the flex plate.

You may also want to check the teeth on the fly wheel, if standard tranny or the flexplate if an automatic.
