starter problems

This starter has got me bummed out. I pulled it out to put in a new tranny in my 90 Chevy full size, and when I put it back in in a hurry, I had the wire turned up toward the exhaust manifold to where it was hitting it when I hit bumps. It was turning off everything, my injectors and dash and all. So anyways, I fixed that, and now I have a new problem. Now, my starter doesn't want to work when it's hot. I figured that I probably shorted something in the starter, but I put a brand new one in(just $30, no biggee). Same thing. It sounds like the bendix gear isn't wanting to go up to the flywheel, just spinning. It starts fine if it's been sitting for a while, just doesn't start if I drive for a while and shut it off. I haven't ever personally heard of this problem, so please give me some insight.
