Were there any shims with the original starter? Have you looked at the flywheel teeth?

Good suggestions.
What is the sound they make, is it a grinding noise or a fast clicking ?

if clicking:
1) Check the cable connections batt to relay, relay to starter, if there is a separate rely.
2) If the relay is separate check the mounting for a good ground.

If the noise is a grinding follow bjohnston238’s suggestion, also check to see if there is anything getting in the way of the starter sitting flat.
