Your description of this issue suggests a bad flywheel...big job......so...let's make sure I am reading you correctly. NEW Starter means this part is NOT a rebuilt Unit. Won't engage means the starter motor spins and makes a whirring noise but will not actually CRANK the Engine over. Am I correct? If I am correct....you either have a bad " NEW" Starter Motor...or....a bad Flywheel. So...what say you?
