Truck has 175,000 miles, burns oil but runs good. Every so often the starter and flywheel do not engage properly. Think I am missing a tooth on the flywheel.

    Pull starter to check the drive gear! Look into starter cavity at the teeth on flywheel while a helper very slowly turns the engine to check the condition of the teeth!! Mark flywheel so you can tell when a complete revolution has been made. Now check it one more time! It may be a defective starter drive gear or also called the bendix.
