Whats wrong with my ignition

ON my 83 Jeep Cj7 i turn the key, the starter turns but doesnt engage the flywheel, the i turn the igntion back towards lock (where it should be while the engine is on, and the starter starts again. This time the starter will engage the flywheel, engine will crank but the starter will not stop running. Already replace starter seloniod. Any Suggestions?????????

Replace the starter. It sounds like the Bendix (among other things) is bad.

Re: Whats wrong with my ignition

id swap the starter and the ignition switch, the lock cylinder and rod that actualtes the ignition switch might be suspect too.

check it all, if your starter is bad, and you swap a new one, and the switch is bad the new starter ( and flexplate/flywheel) will soon be bad also.
