problem i think is the starter...but why

since i installed my new engine i've had the (stock but brand-new) starter do something weird. For a while i suspected it was the thing making a high pitched clicking noise (very fast, like it kept spinning)... but i didn't do anything. Then one day my car didn't start. so I turned in the brand new starter under warranty for another. The clicking is happening again usually and mostly while idling after starting the engine.

Is it coming loose? I tested that and it didn't seem to be the case last time.
If it's just the stock starter's quirk, should i just shoot for a higher quality AM brand?

thanks!

It sounds like the starter isnt fully disenguaging. I would do a search on shims for the starter.
