Starter Issues with Remanufactured unit

Picked up an unused remanufactured starter for my SD and hooked it up to a 12 battery for testing and got nothing! It had been sitting in an garage, had some light rust but I would think that it should still be able to turnover outside of the car -any thoughts?

You should be able to rotate the starter shaft by hand. If you can't then it is probably seized mechanically. If you can but it doesn't rotate when connected (correctly) to a battery then it is shot electrically. Check the brushes to see if they are OK and the commutator to make sure it is reasonably clean. If they all check out, it is likely a winding problem.

All is well -used beefy jumper cables versus my neighbors test leads which were under cabled for the job -starter works great!
