Starter runs but will not engage fly wheel

The Bendix drive is bad in the starter. You can either rebuild it or just purchase a new rebuilt starter.
The Bendix drive is what pushes the starter gear into the flywheel the then it will turn the flywheel. When the Bendix drive goes bad the starter just spins/whirls.
