87 560sl won't start; new starter, hear whining sound

Just installed a new starter; car started fine. Tried starting again after a few days and all I hear is a whining sound. Starter is not catching, engine does not turn over. Sounds like the flywheel is not catching. Mechanic friend is thinking of taking the axle, exhaust and trannie out to get to flywheel to inspect/replace. Any help would be appreciated.

Fuel pump is working.
