Ian matthews, two possibilities come immediately to mind. the motor is/has seized and the starter can't turn it over , or (most likely) your starter windings are shorted. Remove the spark plugs from your engine and see if your starter can not turn the engine over. Ultimately I'd replace the starter first and see what it does.
