Balky restarts might not be attributable to the starterheader

Q: I have a 1999 Dodge ¾-ton diesel that’s going through starters ever month or so. The batteries and all the cables have been replaced. Not long ago the fuel injector pump also was replaced to the tune of about $2,500. Within a week or two of the new starter being installed, my truck starts fine in the morning but after two or three stops during errands around town, it starts to take an unusual amount of “cranking” to start. It eventually fails altogether after a few days of this pattern. It still sounds like it’s turning over adequately, but just doesn’t start.
