Thought I would post my solution to this problem of the starter turning but completely engaging with the fly wheel. I had it rebuilt twice ending up with the same problem in the tractor.
Finally I noticed that the gear was hanging up at the rear of the starter. I went to the local hardware store and purchased two C clips that would fit the shaft. Installed them at the rear of the shaft so the gear would not come back so far. To my surprise it has been working for about two years now. It may be crude .. but it worked for me.

Ya the starter on my C does that once in a while I then just pull it and pop the gear loose. Something about how hard it kicks back when the engine fires up is all I can think of for it to happen

One thing you always have to remember when working on something.
There is a right way a wrong way and your way.
If your way works then that is that.
