Since I'm not familiar with the belt drive, I have to ask if it has an outer bushing the starter drive runs on? I ask because it sounds like an alignment issue and the starter isn't retracting due to sticking in the bushing.

I would be checking the assembly in this diagram from the parts manual. There are two springs, one further inside being called the return spring (#14).
I screwed that one up in 2003 during surgery when I forgot the small plate that holds that small pin in, and somehow did not lose the pin!
Freaking thing worked though. It’s together correctly now.
Can you post some pictures?
