1988 Chevrolet Silverado Repair Question
Eating starters, want crank with switch read more
I'm not sure how it is wired, but if you are going through starters, that is odd. The truth is when you push the button, you are sending power to the solenoid on the starter. That's it. The starter does the rest. If it is making a grind noise, either you have a bad flywheel, the solenoid isn't engaging fully and only grinding against the teeth on the flywheel, or it is loose and out of position. Check the flywheel for damage as well as the gear in the starter. Check for evidence that is isn't making proper connection.

check to see if that vehicle uses shims on the starter mount. bad mesh can shorten starter life and possibly damage flywheel teeth making a new starter act up.
