Default Starter won't engage

I just replaced the starter and I can hear the solenoid kick in, but nothing happens. Battery has plenty of power. I don't think the engine is locked-up (112,000 miles)...haven't check that yet. Could be a bad "rebuilt" starter.....any other ideas?

Just a suggestion: Do NOT get Duralast starters from Autozone *if* you have to get a new starter, go to Napa for quality parts.
