trouble starting car after engine transplant

just changed motors from one ea to another because my original one was stuffed. the transplant was fine but i cant seem to start the car. when i first tried to start the car it would turn over fine but not fire. now all i get is a clicking noise from the starter motor (i think). the battery has plenty of juice, i also tried 2 other batteries and the same thing happens. terminals on the battery are tight and sprayed with wd-40. so i dont know what to do now.

any help would be appreciated..

thanks

ea, central point, 3 speed auto.

Re: trouble starting car after engine transplant

sounds like a bad earth or a faulty starter relay or something similar.

check these.

did you reconnect the engine earth strap?

Re: trouble starting car after engine transplant

maybe the solenoid in the starter mover which moves the gear onto the flywheel is stuffed?

Re: trouble starting car after engine transplant

Could be either of the two mentioned or both.
Is all the ECU wiring sorted and connected?
