Andy, Hi, well I would start at the Starter myself, usually the thing called the "Bendix" spring jams up and stops it dead. Pull of the Starter, and power it up, off the unit. This will show you if it snaps in and out.
Sometimes a few judicious whacks with a soft hammer will sometimes free up the spring, if thats is indeed what's wrong. Anyway try that first. before any disassembly.
Make sure the Motor CAN actually be turned, by turning the flywheel, this should show you if the Motor is "Free" enough to move.
Also check ALL electrical connection to the starter. Use a meter and see if you are actually getting a voltage to the starter too. make sure your starter battery is good too.
