If you've removed the engine, the starter motor has nothing to engage with, it turns the engine via the teeth on the edge of the flywheel, it does not turn anything in the gearbox. The starter motor should spin with the engine removed, so you either have a bad starter motor, or a bad solenoid, or both. If the starter is "engaging" (i.e throwing out the pinion), the solenoid is working, but may not be making contact to run the motor. Try tapping the solenoid and/or starter with a hammer, (avoid the fragile bakalite end of the solenoid), to see if that helps it to make contact.
