No clicking sound on GT 200 with start .... just spinning sound
from the starter

Does this mean engine starter is broken?

just a spinning sound means either your bendix is not functioning properly, the starter splines are stripped or the ring-gear is stripped.

more than likely, though, the battery is not properly charged and is failing to turn over the starter at the proper rpm and thus the bendix is not engaging.
