MODELS TRUCK WILL NOT START

1986 GMC Other

Electrical problem
1986 Other GMC Models V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual 84000 miles

The truck starts up with no problem but will not re start after its been running for a awhile. The battery dies down and the engine will not turn over. This happens after minimal attempts. I have had this problem twice now and each time I replaced the stater. Jump starting will not work all the time. It takes awhile for the truck to charge up however I had the batteries check (2 of them) and they are fine. The last time the starter was smoking. I see smoke coming from the starter again. What is causing this. This will be the 4th starter in 3 years. What is going on. Please help. Replacing this starter agin is crazy not to mention expensive. How many will they warranty?
