There is a possibility that the starter bendix drive is stuck in the flywheel.
A starter has to have that little bit of rotation before it engages the flywheel to overcome the static inertia of the engine otherwise it is not strong enough to roll the engine over.
Try rotating the engine by hand for a full revoloution in both directions and see if it will unhang. This may or may not be the problem but something to check.
