i have had this situation occur twice - for 2 different, i think, reasons…and its been about 2 years now…first time, it was a failing ignition coil at higher than normal engine temps…and the second turned out to be what is called "heat-soak" to the starter…i had replaced the original, more bulky bosch starter with the updated, smaller unit of the same P/N…went through 2 units in less than a year before my ring gear was toothless for every third start…i wrapped the latest starter in that heat deflection stuff as best i could, and wrapped a thin-walled plate of aluminum as a heat shield from the heat exchanger directly below…wish i had pics, but i don't…sounds like your situation is linked to the engine temp and its relation to those things that are less tolerant…good luck to you...
