Still might be the starter or components piggy-backed on it
Could it possibly need shimming. Do lights "dim" any when attempting to start. Might be binding in the flywheel teeth.I'd still test it anyway, once again. Talk to the parts store about this particular starter, having problems and requiring shims
Pin down your "hum". Use a heater or garden hose, several feet long, like a stethoscope!
What about the crimped on cable ends. Sometimes they look fine, but really not crimped on well or corroded inside the crimps. Many times a simple overlooked connection can cost you mega time and money!
Return with good news!
