WHY WONT MY STARTER POP OUT AND TURN MY FLYWHEEL?

1979 Chevrolet Silverado

Ive changed the flywheel once. And put 3 different starters on it. All of em just grinded the flywheel to hell so I got this one. And it finally caught the flywheel and started the truck about 10 times. It grinded a little before it started up everytime but now the starter wont even pop out and cetche the flywheel. How do I fix the starter to where it pops out.

You might need to add a shim or to.
