Starter keeps turning

350 chevy, just put a new starter on and now the starter keeps cranking after the key is turned back to run. Solenoid sticking? I wired it just like the old starter, I just don't know.

Could be a bad solenoid or a wire re-check the wires. Also what year is the vehicle could have a bad relay.JMO

inspect to see if the solenoid control wire is not bearing against the power cable from the battery.

The battery cable had a large bare lug that if the control wire is lying against it, can power the solenoid if the two are shorting out.

Years ago I had a 79 Z28 that did this same thing, I checked the solenoid and it was melted internally.

Did it come with shims? Sounds like it could be too tight against the ring gear, adding a shim or two can get it a little farther away. I have only had to use them once, and it was to fix a starter run on problem, where you could rev the motor a little and it would stop sticking. The shim fixed it. The last starter I put on a month a ago came with a few in the box but I didn't end up needing em

X2 on the shims, I was thinking about them and seen where you posted good call, Could very well be the problem. Don't hapen very often but does happen just the same.

Sorry guys, I double posted and lost track. The solenoid was bad so I bought a rebuilt starter and it works. The new starter(made in china) was shimed correctly and sounded fine, it's just that you had to remove the battery cable to stop it. I could have taken it apart and fixed it but it really bugs me to repair a "new" part. Thanks for the responses.
