Exclamation Please Help 88 ford ranger 2.9l

Okay, i got this truck with a blown freeze plug. So i pulled the motor and put it back in, hooked all the wires back up and everything. When i go to fire it, all it does is make a clicking noise. i tried jumping the solenoid that didn't work. All my wires to the starter is connected. Does any one got any more ideas please

Click--- check battery condition and connections (must be clean and tight), bat.>solenoid>starter. Make sure all the grounds were hooked back up and are clean and tight.

Hard clunk sound---- make sure to motor is not hydro-locked.

Pull all the plugs out and see if it will crank. If you had water or gas in the cylinders, it will shoot out.
