Sounds like maybe a bad starter drive in the starter. Replacing the starter is not that tuff a job. With that many miles you will want to replace the starter relay on the fender, this will ensure maximum power to the starter.

Here's the starter R & R procedure.

You can allways pull it off and have it tested. But, it really would not hurt to replace it with that many miles.
