Starter or bad battery, or starter electrical relay (if there's such a thing).

Just remembered something i read here. Use a mallet and tap several times on the starter. Don't bang on it, tap on it, not lightly but not with major force. Sometimes that frees up the mechanism.

If you're going to have to replace the starter, well, consider all the other work that you can do along the way if important and tedious stuff like manifolds need to come off, and then do them all at one go.
