When the starter turns, the spindle of the starter is supposed extend out and engage with the teeth of the flywheel. I would advise removing the starter and testing it to see if the spindle extends when it receives power.
This should have been checked when fitting the solid flywheel, adjustments are easy to make with the gearbox out of the way. I would advise removing the gearbox and checking the starter engagement with the gearbox removed, it's likely the flywheel may not be the correct one for the engine.
