Recently my truck wasn't running after some modifications to exhaust and egr. now it started and ran and idled on its own for about 30 seconds then it bogged back down and shut off. upon turning it back over the starter is whining and spinning freely and not starting the motor. I can hear it actuating and tuning the fly wheel at least I think its turning it. I took off the starter and bench tested it it kicked out and spun. I used a socket and ratchet to turn the engine and the engine turns so I know its not frozen or siezed up. help..

Bendix is broken, starter is misaligned, or the gears are stripped.
