When you did the solenoid did you put the wires on the right terminals??? The Positive battery cable goes on one side with the accessory wires, the other heavy cable is for the starter, goes on the other side of the solenoid. Check the negative battery cable connections. There is one connection on the bellhousing or one of the starter bolts. Should be a group size 65 battery with the positive terminal next to the air cleaner towards the L. side of the vehicle. What was the initial problem, starter just clicking, no cranking at all???
