Is the starter turning the engine, or is the starter just spinning?
Starter just spinning, usually is the gear of the starter not meshing with the flywheel. I think you need to remove the starter and look for damage to the starter drive gear. I need the engine model number to see what starter you have and is it battery powered, or 120 volt house current?
did you see my response?
