I hate to ask, but you left the flywheel on the motor? Does it click, make any noise? Do you mean it won't rotate the motor at all? Did you disconnect any wiring?

Did you try rolling over the motor with a long bar and socket?

Sounds like battery is low or the solinoid on the starter is done, or the starter its self is gone.
