Angry Starter Box problems :(

One of my motors in the starter box blew, so I decided to replace both with a RS-550SH-7522 MABUCHI. However after soldering it on and make sure it spins the wheel. I place the car back onto the starter box and re-aligned. However if I try to start the car it the box makes and funny sound and it moves the flywheel about 1/2 inch and just makes the flywheel vibrate

My engine, is not brand new and there is some resistance to the flywheel if I try turning it with my hand?

Any suggestions? Is the wheel spinning the wrong way?

Thanks for the reply, how do I know if it spinning the right direction?

At the moment I have following wiring diagram, how would I change so it spins the other way.

Sorry for the crude diagram.

The starter box donut should be spinning towards the front of the car. If it's not you can reverse the direction by either swapping pos/neg on the battery (no ower panel box) or by swapping positive negative on the motors themselves.
