Need Help Not Cranking

I am restoring a 1965 galaxie and have recently replaced the battery, starter, starter selonoid, and coil but car will not crank over. Think it might be the neutral safety switch but not sure. NEED HELP PLEASE!!!!

Re: Need Help Not Cranking

Does it have a remote solenoid for the starter?

normally located near the battery!

If it does. Handbrake ON, and chock the wheels! try jumping pure positive to the starter side of the solenoid. If it cranks starter is not your problem.

The try jumping the two smaller terminals on the solenoid. If it cranks then the solenoid is not your problem.

If you get through those tests, then your problem is either wiring or ignition switch.
