Model 422707 type 1228-01. Brand new starter
and solenoid. I'm getting about 6 months out of a
starter gear using genuine Briggs gears. I noticed
some wear on flywheel ring gear, I can see the
teeth are slightly thinner where the starter gear
meshes. Could this be the problem? Thanks

I would say that would be the best place to start. If the teeth have some damage then it will not take long for the plastic gear to be damaged. I guess the damage to your gear is the teeth correct. You can replace the ring gear on the flywheel and I stock new ones for around $45 for the briggs one not aftermarket.

I would say your ring gear that worn is like a chainsaw up against the plastic starter gear.
