starter problems.

i got a 82 toyota pickup 4x4 with a stock 22r. back in june i had to replace the starter because the starter would draw to much amps upon start up. since then i had to warranty the starter 3 times, because upon trying to start the truck the dash lights would dim as if power was being drawn but the truck wouldn't start. then i would have to tap/hit the starter and it would start. i beleive its contact failure. the brand is a delco remy napa starter. i was just wondering if anyone has had this problem with napa starters? or could ther be something wrong with my truck? thanks.

I don't think the starter is your problem ... bad grounds can cause issues like these, I had similar ones in my truck. Make sure the power wire to the starter is a fat gauge, make sure you have adequate chassis and body grounds.

Before I added proper grounds my motor was really hard to start and the starter would really struggle. Now that I added ground from motor to chassis , motor to body , and battery to body grounds my starters works much better and my voltage remains much more constant

Did you check the ground from the battery to the chassis and from the chassis to the block?
