Default 2nd starter

My old starter went on me. Had to use the old hit it with a hamer trick till I got a new one. Put the new one in and it started the car but a few seconds later it smoked. Thought I got a bad rebuild but I just had the same thing happen to the second one I put in. This time it blew a main fuse because all lights on dash went but engin was still running fine.

Have you looked at the cables to the starter/cleaned the connections? Corroded cables/connections mean more resistance - with the current a starter takes could easily smoke insulation.
