The solenoid is part of the replacement right?

There could be low voltage causing it to overheat. Does it crank normally?
Might check/upgrade the cables, especially engine to body ground cable.

Could also be something serious like  mis-drilled starter holes, causing a
gear misalignment and extra load, or maybe the starter needs to be shimmed a
bit.  Do you know what the failure mode was?
