Rover 214 sei

Bought a rover 214 sei with a suspected HGF after inspection it seemed to be the inlet manifold gasket. So I changed that put it back together and now the car won't turn over at all get a whine when I try to start it but no sign of the engine attempting to start.

I've changed the battery no luck gave the starter motor a good smacking still nothing.

Thought maybe the engine had seized so tried turning it and the engine is free.

Any suggestions would be very well received as I'm stumped and don't want to scrap it.

I've uploaded tried uploading a video of the noise it makes but had no joy.

When you say you just get a whine what do you mean? Does the engine actually rotate and make a whine or do you just get a whine and the engine don't move.
If it's just like a whirring sound it might be the starter is spinning but not engaging with the flywheel.
