well good news its an easy solution. You probability need to rebuild the starter as the parts are prob gummy and possibly worn out
i say remove the starter motor and get some pics posted. also test the motor as it might also be something wrong with the ring gear on the motor. I just did a starter motor for my novo 4 cylinder and they rather easy and parts easy to get your hands on for brushes and bushings and pole shoe screws. I bet the springs on the starter drive are a bit weak and things might not be doing their job so well anymore
