Default 1987 ranger grinding starter

Okay so here are my problems with my 1987 ranger 2.9 liter 2 wd manual. I recently got my truck stuck in the mud and my starter went out. I replaced my starter and it started twice and then would only grind. I then took it to a shop who tried to fix it but put the wrong starter on and killed my flywheel. Since then i have replaced the starter solenoid, starter cable, battery, flywheel, clutch, and bellhousing. Once i replaced my flywheel my battery was pretty much dead and it turned my engine over great but would not start the truck, i then replaced my battery and it, like before, started my truck twice before the starter started grinding and eventually lost all contact with the flywheel. I cannot shim it due to the fact that theses starters cant be shimmed, and i have tried spacers with no luck. I truly don't know what to do now, any advice would be helpful at this point.
