The only way to know for sure is to have a diagnosis performed by a trusted, certified mechanic. However, there may be tell-tale signs of a starter issue, such as a grinding sound when you go to start the car. I am not a certified mechanic, however, I do have much experience fixing cars, and have replaced a few starters. Depending on where the starter is located on the car, build up could occur on the terminals from the battery, resulting in a loss of electrical conductivity. You have to be careful when tampering with a starter, as doing so should result in an electrical shock. The battery should be disconnected before messing with it. My recommendation, however, would be to find a trusted, local mechanic that can help you determine if the starter needs to be replaced. You can always buy a used/re-manufactured part and have the mechanic install it for you (if they are willing to). Auto shops often get commission off of new parts that they acquire for you. Good luck!

I have installed a new starter on my 580C backhoe When I turn the starter switch it will not engage wheel and just akes a whirring sound Have taken it out and reinstalled it but get the same results

I can talk to you in automotive terms, I know nothing about a backhoe.
I can usually lay the starter motor on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from starter to battery, at the least, it should kick out the starter drive gear and spin. If it doesn't kick out the drive gear, starter is faulty. I don't know if starter solenoid sits on top of starter motor? I replace as an assembly. Did you check flywheel teeth? I've never worked on a backhoe.

Starter stays engaged

It could be the starter or the key switch. You would need to know if the starter solenoid is getting power from the key when the key is off to know. It should not be getting power if the key is off.

Need to know where the starter is located

Not knowing what model or year your vehicle is makes it hard to give an exact answer but the starter will be at the rear (usually the passenger side) where it can connect with the flywheel or starter ring when engaged. You can also fallow the large positive battery cable from either the starter solenoid or battery to locate the starter.

I need to know how to install the new starter a 1987 camero.

General procedure to replace a starter is to disconnect the battery, un-bolt the starter from the engine,
remove the wires from the solenoid (mark them so you know where they go) and reverse the process to install. If there is anything in the way of physically getting the starter out, remove or move it out of the way. some starters require a bit of turning to get them to clear obstructions. If your radio has a security code, know it before disconnecting the battery...same for security systems if you have one.
The connections on the starter are mounted in a plastic cap....don't over-tighten or you will break it.
