Check with the part store if they gave you the correct unit
check the flywheel try to spin the fly wheel and look if the engine spin and check for a play in the fly wheel

We ran to the same problem and it was the wrong starter
it will bolt on with no problem but will not make a contact with the fly wheel
good luck!
