Post 1979 300SD

Car was running well, but now refuses to turn over. New battery installed, cables are good. When trying to start it acts like dead battery or dragging starter (will not turn over one cylinder). Have boosted with a known good battery. Is there any possibility that something mechanical has jammed? Anyone had this problem?

Try hitting the starter with a hammer, sometimes the solenoid or the bendix is stuck.
