Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be solenoid not releasing, ignition switch not moving from start to run position, I presume new solenoid on starter..if not or firewall mounted replace, was there a shim plate on old starter that was left off on new install ?

that sounds correct what happens is the starter still tries to engage the flywheel and grinds the teeth off both. Replace switch then worry about starter flywheel if it starts fine don't worry about it you may have saved it if you didn't let it run that way long

engine crank thrusts worn and crank moved back enough to not engage ,with a manual the clutch would push it forewards.or the flex plate on the back of the torque converter damaged and broke in teh centre where bolts to the crank

You can turn it by hand just dont force it.Are you missing any shims and are all your connections tight.Check for good ground and all connections to starter and battery..
