BAD STARTER OR FLYWHEEL?

1985 Chevrolet Silverado

I have an 85 chevy c10 with a 350 engine and a turbo 350 transmission. Recently when starting the truck it ounds like the starter is stuck while the engine is running. Ill turn it off and sometimes itll do it again but eventually it starts up normally. Some people say that its a bad flywheel so I check the teeth on it and there all fine. Can it be a warped flywheel or is it just a bad starter?

Flywheels don't warp that easily. Most likely a bad starter gear.
