    Battery strong? Correct polarity?

    Remove and clean the battery ground cable at the engine.

    Is it possible the Bendix was installed wrong?
    Flywheel keyway sheared?

    no the keyway is good...battery is charged...the bendix i ASSUME is in right,with the larger gear toward the starter....hmmmm... like i said i know this ran last summer...could it be the wrong starter??/or bad??

    Have you verified that the engine and driveshaft/pump assembly is all free turning?

    If so, pull the starter and verify it is installed correctly.

    if you pull the starter out make sure you sand where it bolts to the engine on the block and the starter. The new starter could have paint keeping it from grounding properly.

    What exactly are you hearing? Earlier you said you could hear it turning.

    The heavy red cables connect to the start solenoid. When you press Start the solenoid clicks in to deliver heavy power to the starter motor.

    Immediately after the solenoid clicks in the starter motor should spin up. The starter motor rotation then flings the Bendix gear forward into the flywheel teeth and starts to crank the engine itself over.

    So, what are you hearing?
    Solenoid click once when you press and hold the Start button
    Starter motor spinning
    Gear spinning of the Bendix
    Engine itself cranking over, and drive shaft turning
    ...
