I swapped out a blown engine for a used one. Everything seemed to go back together quite well, but when I go to start it, the starter won't engage the flywheel.

the starter seems to work outside of the engine - I hooked it up, turned the key and the bendix gear spins - but when mounted in the engine, it produces the "machine gun" sound common with a dead battery - but the battery is brand new and charged.

Any ideas?
