Default 89 ford ranger mtn states edition

Hey guys new here the reason I registered is because I recently purchased a single cab1989 Ford Ranger XLT Mtn States Edition, 2.9l V6, 5 speed manual, 4x4 w/ manual lockers......well I have searched and searched and found nothing about this Mountain States edition, my issue is... I went to start my truck one day and it sounded like it was grinding and the truck would not turn over, new starter? yes...but it went out 3 weeks later same issue.....thank you lifetime warranty replaced it along w/ the solenoid worked great....for about 2 more weeks....same issue....so once more to the parts store....new battery, new terminals along w/ a check of all wiring, starter...this time....it would not start I once again pulled the starter and checked the flywheel....a little wear on the front end of the teeth but not major at all the mechanic here wants $350 to replace the flywheel with a used one thats in pretty good condition....I cant go without a vehicle so I dished it out if anything else goes wrong is this truck worth even putting more money into?

Count the teeth on your starter. I had a Bronco II that did the same thing, had a 9 tooth gear on the end of the starter. Went to my friendly parts store and got a 10 tooth, swapped it in and never replaced the starter again.

Got my truck back from the shop and it starts better now went to spray degreaser on the engine at the carwash to see where my oil is leaking and bumped a plug wire with the wand and it fell out of the boot to the distrubuter cap turns out it was burnt up pretty bad so now it runs alot better if it does go out again and I end up pulling the starter again I know what to check, Thank you. so does anyone have any information on this Mountain States Edition?
