i just got a 69 bug and the other day i tried to crank it and all i could hear was the starter running, it didn't turn over at all... does that mean my flywheel has a bad spot or is it my starter?

Could be that the started did not engage, missing teeth on the fly wheel, busted starter gear and so on. Turn the pulley to get a fresh place on the fly wheel. Tap on the started with a small hammer while someone starts it.

Let someone else try to crank it and see if the motor is actually spinning (belt will be spinning). I say this because I did not adjust the valves in my new heads before I tried to crank it. They were all super tight, so much that they were not closing at all. No compression, no sputtering, nada. I adjusted the valves and it fired on the first crank!
