97 starter will not crank engine

97 power stroke starter engages but will not turn the motor, put in a new starter, starter relay, batteries are two years old and show 12.4 volts it engages and sounds like the starter motor is spinning but it won,t turn the engine can the batteries show good voltage but still not be able to turn the engine.

Thanks

I'd pull the inspection cover and take a look at the flexplate if it is a automatic or flywheel if a 5 speed.

You also might of gotten a bad starter.

I'm assuming the motor actually spins? You should be able to rotate it with a breaker bar/socket on the crank pulley. Cheers!
