1987 Jaguar XJ6

Electrical problem
1987 Jaguar XJ6 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles

replaced the starter with another and it started 4 or 5 times up on the jack. Let it down and now does not start. I hear a metalic click and the starter spens but does no engage. What can I do to fix this problem. To me it sounds like the teeth are not lining up

Start by checking the starter is bolted up securely. And this is the correct starter?
